SpamAssassin, even at the best of times, is sloo.oo.oooooowww...

I remember seeing a bug report on their page which indicated that SA
could loop for a very long time under some circumstances.

See http://www.spamassassin.org/downloads.html

"(NOTE: there's a hang bug in SpamAssassin 1.5. See the FAQ for
details and a fix.)"

I don't know why it's fast from the command line; it might be using a
different configuration file.
