OK, it is really a bug - we'll try to fix it soon.
I'm not sure if there's any workaround until then though... maybe limiting the maximum size of files to be extracted from archives (MaxFileSizeToExtract_Scanner) would help.

Phew! I'm relieved that it's not only me who is getting this problem. :)

I'll have a mess about with the 'ini' file.  In the meantime I've excluded the archives from the scan. I'll keep an eye out for the ''Unable to Scan:..." error message.

Thanks!
