My problem (actually feature) was I had the following ...

     High Scoring Spam Actions = attachment

for high scoring spam.  It seems to just delete high scoring spam then.  I set 
both Spam Actions and High Scoring Spam Actions to "deliver attachment store" 
and now I see what I was expecting.

So far I'm happy with how much better SpamAssassin is labeling high scoring 
spam.  I think I'll just move that action to "delete".

Thanks for the help.
