MailScanner increasing score over threshold but message passed as

I've hiked up the score below:
Treat Invalid Watermarks With No Sender as Spam = 3
But when this pushes the spam score over 5 with the addition of SpamAssassin
hits (my spam threshold is 5, high scoring spam is 10) the message gets
passed as clean. It appears that the score is getting added but ignored.
These are the hits from SpamAssassin:
2.00 ANY_BOUNCE_MESSAGE Message is some kind of bounce message
-2.60 BAYES_00 Bayesian spam probability is 0 to 1%
0.10 BOUNCE_MESSAGE MTA bounce message
2.70 FH_FROMEML_NOTLD E-mail address doesn't have TLD (.com, etc.
This is the total score (as reported in MailWatch):
SpamAssassin Score: 5.20
Am I doing something wrong here or is this a bug?
