Yes, I can say this, as well. My computer swapped twice (so much, that I
had to hit MSysRq and boot) because of SA started to investigate pretty
big binary mails. Although, "fixing" the problem is pretty easy; just
add 'required_hits = x' in ~/.spamassassin/user_prefs, where 'x' is
maybe 5 or something else. This makes SA to stop processing mails
further than hits you just specified.
