RE: -r option

On further inspection the milter does not appear to be applying ANY of the 
options in the /etc/sysconfig/spamass-milter file.  It is definitely reading 
the file; I tried using Nigel Horne's -D option (BEFORE adding the patch) and 
when I tried to restart spamass-milter it complained (correctly) that -D was an 
invalid option.  I then patched and reinstalled spamass-milter with the -D 
enabled.  This time, it did not complain when I tried the -D option.
So it appears to be reading the file, but not applying any of the options.
The -D option has no effect.
The -d (debug) option has no effect.
The -r option has no effect.
Any ideas on why this would be the case?

        Well, I definitely have the headers...and I'm passing -r10.  Yet, I'm
        still getting mail with scores as high as 25.  That shouldn't be shows up with Spam-Status YES, and the Subject is
        re-written per my setup...
