Negative SA value and scoring

        If Spam Assassin returned a negative score for a piece of mail, would
MailScanner still add a "Spam Score" (the sssss) to the message?  I'm
seeing some messages that don't have a Spam Report attached, but are
getting a Spam Score of less than the threshold.  The message IS spam,
but has some phrases that could give it a negative value is SA.

        Does MailScanner handle the minus sign right for SpamScore like it does
for SpamReport?
