Trouble with bayes sql

Hi all,

With the latest MailScanner and spamassassin do you have to set up a 
symlink in /etc/mail/spamassassin to in order for the 
bayes to be used?
Also do I need to make root the bayes_sql_override_username or should it 
be postfix?

I have bayes setup as a mysql database - setttings are in 
spamassassin.prefs.conf (as per the wiki instructions for MailScanner)

The reason I ask is because none of the bayes rules are being hit at all.
This is the settings in spamassassin.prefs.conf
bayes_store_module           Mail::SpamAssassin::BayesStore::SQL
bayes_sql_username           username (not used anywhere else)
bayes_sql_password           thepassword
bayes_sql_override_username  root

I run spamassassin as user postfix
