I think the seeking for the Razor server on startup is a bug; I'm just
getting the latest version of spamassassin from testing so perhaps it
has been fixed.
I find that using Razor is very slow. I've therefore included the -L
switch in /etc/default/spamassassin to make filtering local and this has
speeded things up greatly without much increase in spam getting through.
