What does this command (executed as your mailscanner "run as user") have 
to report?
spamassassin -x --lint -D config

Also from your pastebin.. some observations.

#[7598] dbg: config: score set 1 chosen.         188.57324

Score sets 0-3 exist..
Set 0 is for the ruleset with bayes and network tests disabled.
Set 1 is for the ruleset with network tests enabled.
Set 2 is for the ruleset with bayes enabled.
Set 3 is for the ruleset with network tests and bayes enabled.
