[solved] SA bayes not working / autolearn inactive?

Thanks to everybody for your suggestions.
I stopped MailScanner, and went through the directory tree manually, picking it over with a fine-toothed comb (as it were). I found that the parent directory of the bayes data directory did not have it's execute bit set for the group - only for the user.
On the functioning mail servers, this group x bit was set. Voila.
After making this change and re-starting MailScanner, SpamAssassin is now happily reading from and writing to the bayes database, and autolearn is active.
Sometimes the best solutions are the most simple. :P
