It's been fixed in the latest release.  It was caused by spamassassin not
running when the size of the email message was greater than the maximum
specified in mailscanner.conf.  The default size is 50k.

Putting it too high can slow down your server...too low and spamassassin
doesn't run with big messages.  When spamassassin didn't run you would
receive the "SpamAssassin ()" in the header.  With the new release of
mailscanner this has been changed to say that spamassassin didn't run.
