Wow, I feel like an idiot now.  I should have thought about spamassassin
running as a different user than how I was logged on to the box.  There
were a couple of errors when I ran lint as postfix.  I got those fixed
and it seems to be scoring quite a bit differently now.

Thank you all for your help.
