Yes, everything is working fine with SpamAssassin 2.50 as long as I don't
call it from within MailScanner.  Going back to SA 2.44 works either being
called within MailScanner or from procmail.

Calling SA 2.50 from MailScanner will peg the CPU cycles at 100% and then
MailScanner starts shutting down SA.

I'm using Redhat 7.3, MailScanner 4.12-2.  The rest of the system is stock
