Well, I was a little too hasty to claim success.  After all my
experimenting I had forgotten to turn on spamassassin checking in
MailScanner.conf.  All I was getting was the empty x-header.

I went back and turned on SpamAssassin in MailScanner.conf and immediately
the MailScanner processes used up all CPU cycles and started timing out

I'm now back to just running SpamAssassin from procmail and everything is
working again???
