What I have is this:

   Starting clamd: LibClamAV Error: mpool_malloc(): Attempt to allocate
   2097152 bytes. Please report to http://bugs.clamav.net
  LibClamAV Error: cli_ac_addpatt: Can't realloc ac_pattable
  LibClamAV Error: cli_parse_add(): Problem adding signature (3).
  LibClamAV Error: Problem parsing database at line 102027
  LibClamAV Error: Can't
    load /var/lib/clamav/INetMsg-SpamDomains-2m.ndb: Malformed database
  ERROR: Malformed database
  Closing the main socket.

Nothing to do with the generally supplied scripts as I use my own.
Removing the DB file and clamav starts up fine.

Line 102027 in the above file shows:


(line wrapped by me)
If I delete the line then clamd still fails to start with the same error
and same line number. There is no doubt something wrong in the file, but
it may take a while to locate exactly what.
