Every logrotating kills clamav-milter daemon and doesn`t start it again.

In the file /etc/logrotate.d/clamav there is a line:
"/bin/kill -HUP `cat /run/clamav/ 2>/dev/null` 2> /dev/null || true"

To use clamav-milter I have created my own clamav-milter service file:
Description='ClamAV Milter'

ExecStart=/usr/bin/clamav-milter --config-file /etc/clamav/clamav-milter.conf


Additional info:
package version: 0.100.2-2

I had the same problem as [Filip] with the same clamav-milter.service.

I recommend to split /etc/logrotate.d/clamav logrotate config file into:
- /etc/logrotate.d/clamav
- /etc/logrotate.d/freshclam
- /etc/logrotate.d/clamav-milter

Content of files must be adapted.
