Not able to disable default alert

The monit manual says that I can disable the implicit pid-change alert. 
I want to do this for clamav, as this is restarted regularly by a cron 
job (because it is a memory hog - restarting it releases memory).

I have this in my monit configuration:

check process clamd with pidfile /var/run/clamav/
   group virus
   start program = "/etc/init.d/clamd start"
   stop  program = "/etc/init.d/clamd stop"
   if changed pid then exec "/bin/true"
   if failed unixsocket /var/clamav/clamd.sock for 2 cycles then restart
   if 5 restarts within 5 cycles then timeout

The crucial line being the one with 'exec "/bin/true"'.

However, it appears to have no effect - I still get e-mail alerts when 
monit detects that the PID has changed. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for your time,

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of 
God unto salvation to every one that believes; to the Jew first, and 
also to the Greek." - Romans 1:16
