That sounds exactly like some of the issues I've been seeing.  Thanks
for the link; I appreciate it.

And sorry for failing to notice the
initialization-outside-of-filter_initialize issue before; I've
scrupulously avoided that for my own code, but this was code I'd
copied from somewhere else, and that plus the fact that the problems
were apparently caused by libraries called by SpamAssassin, rather
than SpamAssassin itself, kept me from ever realizing my mistake.
*sigh*
