spamassassin-users: Difference in score returned and sum of all

Difference in score returned and sum of all points

I'm using SpamAssassin version 3.3.1 running Perl version 5.8.5 on RHEL5.

I've a mail message (not relayed via SMTP) for which I was trying to test
the spam score based on body content and email header.

Command used to check spam score: spamc -R < /tmp/mymailmessage.txt

My question is, though SA reports 2.8 points at the top, on summing-up each
points from the Content analysis details, it is only 2.7 points. Why SA is
reporting/showing an increase by 0.1 point from its Content analysis details
points sum?

Here is the
Content analysis details: (2.8 points, 5.0 required)
