The problem is the "system_bus_socket" file, which is not an actual file but a named pipe.  This is what is stalling out the scanner.  As mentioned before, Fprot GUI is not having a problem with the /var/run/dbus directory.  Just Avast.

I have no problem with dbus's pid or socket files!

What's happen, if you try the command-line scanner:
/usr/lib/avast4workstation/bin/avast /var/run/dbus
???

There's avast.pot file in the installation package. You can start to translate avast! workstation to you language.  ;)

Please, what's happen, if scanning /var/run/dbus directory, if you try this command:

export AVAST_FAILSAFE=1; /usr/lib/avast4workstation/bin/avastgui

culpeper@linux:~> export AVAST_FAILSAFE=1; /usr/lib/avast4workstation/bin/avastgui
/usr/lib/avast4workstation/bin/avastgui: error while loading shared libraries: libesmtp.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

libesmtp.so.5 is located at /usr/lib/avast4workstation/lib/

But libesmtp.so.5.1.4 library should be in /usr/lib/avast4workstation/lib-esmtp directory. Is it there?

There is no lib-esmtp directory.

That new library version works by overwriting it over the old one.  In other words, I renamed it to the old library file name.  I don't know if this should have been done but it will now scan /var/dbus/

Dublin, can you send me the file through email?
I want to translate it in a Windows computer (comparing to the PC versions).
I think anybody in Alwil has my email address  ;D
