thank you for your suggestions - however, MS runs as root. Since *some* 
rules (atm and are triggered, I assume, everything is 
accessible from MailScanner.
When the textcat plugin is enabled, I see a couple of errors in the logs:

textcat: languages filename not defined
Use of uninitialized value in hash element at 
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/Mail/SpamAssassin/Plugin/ line 

- but I don't think this is actually related to my problems. Disabling 
textcat made no real difference so far.
