Scheduled Scan Never Completes

I have the latest version (0.87.1). I have setup a schedule to scan my entire C: drive at 5:30PM every weekday. However, the scan never completes. All I see in the "Virus Scan Report" are entries like this:

--------------------------------------
Scan started: Wed Dec 14 18:30:00 2005

--------------------------------------
Scan started: Thu Dec 15 18:30:00 2005

Is this normal? I'm expecting to see a "--summary--" section at the end as when I manually run clamscan.exe from the command line.

I have already tried the cygwin1.dll suggestion. I found one copy and overwrote it with the one from ClamWin\bin. However, I doubt that ever was a related issue as I had this problem before that other copy of cygwin1.dll got installed onto my machine.

Lastly, I'm writing a program that shells out to clamscan.exe to scan a specified folder. It's working great, unless there are a lot of files (over 100). In this case, clamscan.exe just keeps running and never returns (by "never" I mean I give up after about 10 minutes and do an End Task). I'm wondering if this issue is related to the above problem with scheduled scans.

Anyone encounter anything similar? Any suggestions?

Thanks.

can you try and leave the scheduled scan running longer then 10 minutes, say overnight? 10 minutes may not be enough for 100 or over files, depending on the filesize and whether or not files need unpacking.

I do leave it running longer than 10 minutes. I'm not even at my computer when the scheduled scan is running.

The waiting 10 minutes before doing an End Task was in regards to the custom program I'm writing that shells out to clamscan.exe and the issue I'm having with that (which may or may not be related to the scheduled scan completing).

Thanks.

More info. I noticed a clamscan.exe.stackdump file in the bin directory. Here are the contents... it was timestamped at 6:40PM, so the scan had been running for about an hour and 10 minutes before it crashed:
