Another random thought
When I invoke from the CLI  - there is a -nofork=yes as a part of the 
When systemd tries to do the invocation via the ExecStart line - the 
original clamd at .service file had this --nofork=yes also, the problem was 
that this just caused an abend of the start up with the message:
 > /usr/sbin/clamd: unrecognized option `--nofork=yes'
 > ERROR: Unknown option passed
 > ERROR: Can't parse command line options
and a look at the clamd man shows no such parameter - thus I removed it.
I wonder if this is the issue? Not sure what I can or how I can test.
Will keep playing
