SpamAssassin will read&use all the files in there named
<whatever>.pre, IIRC in lexical order, so setting one thing in any of
them will mean it is used. The idea with the construct is that you
should be able to move up/down versions easily, without the need to
copy over/manage settings "unrelated" to the new version.
There has been a (few IIRC) discussion(s) on ASN in the list. IIRC, to
use it one need do more than load it, so that in itself is reason
enough to disable. Read more about it at
(and elsewhere on their site).

Hm, that seems a bit extreme. Are you by any chance running a slightly
old ClamAV (and perhaps using either clamscan or clamavmodule)? There
was a problem with signature loading a while back.
top should be able to tell you about that.
Could we see an example of the output, where you point out the most
