    I can't comment on whether this is a bug, but it's not a bad idea to scan jpg and gif, given the amount of malware executables hosted on the net with these file extensions.

    Even though they show up in the statistics, they are not actually scanned, just skipped. So this is not a bug.

    The option applies for archives. Logging all scanned files might slow down the system to a crawl and the disk space might get exhausted reasonably quickly.

    Like I said, not a bug.
