If this is SA 3.1.7, remember that the lint test doesn't actually run
any network tests anymore, so to get the real times, run a small
(real!) message through it with
spamassassin -t < /path/to/mail/file

My money is on this being slow RBLs or digest checks:-)... And you'll
likely not see any 3 seconds for those:-D
