ClamWin crash dumps recognized as infected

Some users experimented this new "feature" that allow to send crash reports when the scanner crashes (clamscan.exe.dmp files in C:\Program Files\ClamWin\Bin folder).

Since it may contain some parts of scanner memory obiviously can have virus patterns loaded in memory. To avoid this problem next release will scramble dump files by xor-in with 42.

I really don't want to encrypt user data, it's only to avoid quarantine or deletion of crash dump files. Also many of us have a mailserver AV that will block the report.
