Seemingly cached PBL scores

Any ideas on why RCVD_IN_PBL would still be scored @ 10 when it is set to have a score of 5 in /etc/MailScanner/spam.assassin.prefs.conf.  I copied spam.assassin.prefs.conf from another working edge box and restarted MailScanner with no visible changes.  Also checked all .cf and .conf files for references to the PBL list but haven't seen anything at all that scores it to 10.  Where else could this score be hiding?

Subject: Seemingly cached PBL scores

We are running into an issue on one of our edge boxes where I have RCVD_IN_PBL scored at 5, but it is still being scored at 10 which hasn't been configured in a month or so.  I have checked all files I think of that may be scoring this at 10 with no luck (grep -R PBL /etc/MailScanner, /etc/mail/spamassassin and the file.  Any ideas?


header RCVD_IN_PBL eval:check_rbl('pbl', '')
score  RCVD_IN_PBL 5
