Default High Load (>4.00), Clamscan / SpamAssassin

Hi,

I got a message from my load monitoring script... one of our ispconfig server has a unusual high load since round about 30 minutes…

Code:
29296 username  25   0 63924  35m  29m R 22.3  1.7   0:00.67 spamassassin                                                                                   
29320 username  25   0 20216  13m 7040 R 17.6  0.7   0:00.53 clamscan

It's a Athlon X2 4200 CPU with 2GB RAM… so I think it's not „a matter of size“…
Code:
top - 16:30:22 up 19 days, 57 min,  1 user,  load average: 3.81, 3.72, 3.32
Tasks: 156 total,   5 running, 150 sleeping,   0 stopped,   1 zombie

Looks like a process is stuck… (<defunct>)
Code:

A few minutes later it's working fine…

So… any ideas what's going on there?
