Following that URL you find out that the "bug" was fixed five months
ago. I'm using the Debian Lenny package and it doesn't contain that fix.

root@haven:~# spamassassin --version
SpamAssassin version 3.2.5
  running on Perl version 5.10.0
root@haven:~#

So as I understand it ... everyone using the Debian Lenny package with
the default settings has basically dropped from a spam threshold of 5.0
to 1.8 over night because of this...?

Also, the "fix" five months ago was to add 10 years to what is
classified as "grossly in the future"... That doesn't sound to me as
though this ruke was based on the results of a mass check...
