Depends were you have your rules. if you have all of them in 
/etc/mail/spamassassin then you don't need that symlink. (Actually, I have 
to always *remove* it as I carry my own config.)

It depends on what you used before or if you converted from dbm to SQL 
which username you used there. Have a look at the table bayes_vars. It 
should contain only one record and this will hold the username. If there's 
more than one record, then you trained with different usernames.
