There is a symlink -> /etc/MailScanner/spam.assassin.prefs.conf

in /etc/mail/spamassassin. So, it does have the same config files.

Anyways, the manual SpamAssassin run is not the problem. It works
correctly. Running through MailScanner is giving inconsistent results (and
is hard to debug, since it uses the SpamAssassin Perl API directly).
