Aha!  I've discovered that my spam.assassin.prefs.conf is not being read
when MailScanner calls SA -- because Bayes files are being created, despite
that Bayes SQL lines are in my .conf file.  However, "spamassassin -D
--lint" DOES read the .conf file and shows the SQL lines being read.  Why
would lint read the .conf file, but MS's call of SA not?
