SpamScore + Custom Functions

Quick question, I'm in the process of building out a new MailScanner MX
cluster, and in past lives have always used SQLSpamScores +
SQLBlackWhitelist perl files provided by MailWatch to give us a SQL
Backend to which we then have our own frontend.
The problem is - and you will have to excuse me if this should be to the
MailWatch list as oposed to MailScanner - that the DB entries, Ie. High
+ Low scores are only loaded each time MailScanner is reloaded - we can
prove this by enabling MySQL Query Logging and sending an email - there
is no lookup made to the Scores table at all. I am sure this was not
always the case - however I can't see any reference to it in the
changelog. Can someone advise if I am doing something wrong or if I am
losing my memory :-)
Looking at the Perl files themselves it does appear that they are
written to load the list in one big hit, however I can also remember
someone getting up me once before for cron'ing a reload every hour, as
this really does seem like a poor way to solve the issue.
Many thanks in advance.
