The problem may come from upstream. spamassassin(1p) says "Normally,
SpamAssassin will try to detect whether you are connected to the net
before doing these (non-local) tests anyway". Guessing, maybe this
"detection" is not going well, which would explain why non-local tests
are being avoided. Unfortunately, I haven't found a way to force
spamassassin to run them.

That causes much more overhead (the hole spamassassin process, and not
a tiny client as 'spamc', is started every time a message arrives).
