Maybe those message actually don't hit any tests?

Please post your filter or at least the relevant part that calls
SpamAssassin.  Another thing to try is to make a test that *always* hits.
Maybe something like:

header ALWAYS_HIT Subject =~ /.?/
describe ALWAYS_HIT A rule that always hits
score ALWAYS_HIT 0.00001

Then make sure that you always see ALWAYS_HIT in the results.
