I think I am affected by the same bug.

I installed clamav-daemon using the command line:
sudo apt-get install clamav-daemon

anatoly at NLANGo:~$ clamd
ERROR: Can't open /var/log/clamav/clamav.log in append mode (check permissions!).
ERROR: Can't initialize the internal logger
anatoly at NLANGo:~$ sudo clamd
[sudo] password for anatoly:
ERROR: initgroups() failed.
anatoly at NLANGo:~$ clamd -V
ClamAV 0.95.3/11104/Sun May 30 14:38:16 2010

I am running Ubuntu 9.10, i386
I will try to add some additional information to this bug report using apport-collect command on my computer.

Probably, this bug is related to Bug #433764
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/clamav/+bug/433764
The fix has been released, but the same error message is still there.

Does sudo /etc/init.d/clamav-daemon start work?

Scott,
Yes, it works. We have already discussed it at https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/433764
Here is the output in the terminal:

anatoly at NLANGo:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/clamav-daemon start
[sudo] password for anatoly:
* Starting ClamAV daemon clamd
/usr/sbin/clamd already running.
[ OK ]


Now I agree that in my case it is not a bug.
Thank you for responding to the issue!
