Before starting the daemons set the temporary directory (TMPDIR/TMP env.
variables) where the daemon user (mysql/clamav?) can create temporary files.
You could try to do something like this:
su - -s /bin/sh mysql (this should create the /tmp/.private/mysql
directory) and then put TMPDIR=/tmp/.private/mysql in the mysql startup
script (probably /etc/init.d/mysqld).  (I also think there's a somekind
of temp dir setting in /etc/my.cnf)
