Are you running it against an e-mail with a known match? Using
spamassassin -D -t sample-spam.txt and having sample-spam.txt contain
the complete e-mail including headers?

Are you sure the machine in question doesn't have 2 copies of SA
installed (I have seen this before on cPanel servers, one installed via
CPAN and the other via RPM)
