This has been fixed in 2.32, but there is no prebuilt package for
Ubuntu. Do this for now:

wget clamtk.sf.net/clamtk-2.32.gz
gzip -d clamtk-2.32.gz
chmod +x clamtk-2.32
sudo mv clamtk-2.32 /usr/bin/clamtk
(y to overwrite)

or try the beta:
wget clamtk.sf.net/clamtk-beta.gz
gzip -d clamtk-beta.gz
chmod +x clamtk-beta
sudo mv clamtk-beta /usr/bin/clamtk
(y to overwrite)
