Hm. Not that then (why can't things be simple:-).

Two things come to mind... Either you might have two different
spamassassin installations (one of which is broken), or .... else
there is some problem with your SA (obviously when called from
MS:-)... The first is rather simple to check:
make sure there is only one on the system... Something like
find / -name -print
would show that ...
How to clean up... well, that depends on method of install... Which
leads us to the second:
Where did you get the SpamAssassin you are using? From some
repository, or Jules easy installation package? If the former, copuld
you remove it and try install Jules package?
