I was just checking the spam scores of a message and noticed that they
aren't adding up correctly.  If you check the header shown below it
comes out to a total of 5.76 but the actual score is 8.2.  Any idea

X-MailScanner: Found to be clean
X-MailScanner-SpamCheck: spam, SpamAssassin (score=8.2, required 4, AWL
        BAYES_80 2.86, MIME_BOUND_MANY_HEX 2.90, UPPERCASE_75_100 0.00)

Its a bit weird that the report includes scores of 0.00 for AWL and
UPPERCASE_75_100, which should disable the test & therefore stop it
appearing in the report!
