As a suggestion, I usually copy or ln -s my spam.assassin.prefs.conf to
/root/.spamassassin/user_prefs and then run spamassassin --lint to check my
config files for bugs and typos.

There are several commands in the configfile syntax that have changed for
2.5x. In theory these should be irrelevant on a MailScanner setup as they
are almost all related to the report format and html stripping, which
MailScanner does on it's own.
