So, it seems that:
- the virtual machine doesn't have that much memory (2GB)
- it doesnt have much swap
- clamd is eating a lot of memory

clamd seems to be running for 17 days, about a week after we started
to have some issues with statistics.

If I had root access to this machine, I would: 
- restart clamd
- add more swap
- eventually add more memory

Anyway, I applied your patch and we'll see what happens
