A follow-up to my previous mail(s)

SpamAssassin doesn't understand Rule Names that start with a number, i 
had to change my rule_name from '2nd_xx' to 'Second_xx'. I couldn't find 
this documented on the SA site or Wiki (though there are some documented 
limitations on rule_names like being 22 characters long etc..)

While there are limitations in rule_names, SA started throwing errors 
that were absolutely not related to the actual problem.

If someone can confirm this behaviour, then we could possibly report it 
to the SA bugzilla.
