I'm having the exact same problem!!!
After upgrading to MailScanner 4.49.1, I find that although MailScanner is 
executing SpamAssassin 3.1.0, certain aspects of my SA 3.1.0 are not 
launching especially SNFILTER.  
spamassassin --lint -D
Works great, shows it executing SNFILTER properly
Yet I know its not executing via the MailScanner 4.49.1
Prevous Config was MailScanner 4.28 and it had no problem with SA 

Any ideas?  File Permission somewhere? as well as the /tmp/sniffertmp are all chmod 777

Any idea on how to make MailScanner launch the 'old way' yet use the new 
4.49.1 code?
