Sanesecurity sigs

One thing I've noticed is that if a message triggers a sanesecurity 
header sig, then if MailScanner sends a notice to postmaster and if the 
notice includes the full headers, the notice itself triggers 
sanesecurity and gets quarantined instead of delivered to postmaster.  
This triggers another notification, but this one passes.  This is kind 
of a false positive, but not really, because the bad header really is 

Should I exempt localhost from virus scanning to prevent this?  Or maybe 
a ruleset for the notification would be better.
