    So ive got a couple instances of spamd that keep coming up for the same user (usually 3 at a time) that are causing HUGE load on the server.

    Any idea what might cause this?

    Deleting everything, except user_prefs in /home/username/.spamassassin/ usually solves this problem for me.

    This bug is REALLY annoying, upgrading spamassassin to 3.2.4 like suggested by others does
    not fix the problem - and spending time deleting files like that is not how I'd like to spend my
    day. Really wish there was a more permanent solution.

    You could setup a cron job to delete the files every few days or so.
