recipient address is alias

I have a problem, if a mail is sent to an address which is an alias.
Here, test is an alias for the existing user spamtest. The following
error message occurs:

And the mail is not scanned for spam!!

I start spamass-milter0.1.3a and spamd-2.53 as follows:
su spam -c '/usr/sbin/spamass-milter -p /var/spam/spamass.sock -f -u
spam &'
/usr/sbin/spamd -c -d

Adding the '-u nonrootuser' option to spamd leads to non read/writeable
files, which of course could be fixed by setting proper group
permissions to all relevant home-directories. But I do not want to do

Spamd dies at once if I add -u root (Bug??), with no valuable log (-D3):
Jun  3 14:23:01 spamd[3465]: debug:

The problem is, that I want to run spamd as user root and every mail to
an aliased address has to be scanned with spamd!
Can anybody help me to fix this? 
Thanks is advance.
