Using 2.50 and running "spamassassin -t < sample-spam.txt > spam" works
perfectly.  In fact, I've turned off MailScanner calling spamassassin
directly and started calling it via procmail.  That also works perfectly.

The 100% CPU utilization only occurs when I call spamassassin from within
MailScanner.  MailScanner sits there waiting and then eventually kills
off the spamassassin process.

It looks to me that the spamassassin 2.50 api is broken.  2.44 works
perfectly with no changes to MailScanner.
