SpamAssassin (spamd) eating a lot of CPU....

Since a recent update of Spamassassin to:
I've noticed that each email that gets scanned causes the process to eat
up 80+% of the CPU time, and it's slow...
I'm not really sure what changed.
Likewise, when I start it up for the first time, I see:
[ top output ]
49106 root 1 106 0 290M 267M RUN 0 0:17 *98.52%*
I have a Dell system here, and it cranks up the fan every time a message
comes in now, with the recent spamd.
Curious if anyone else has had these issues, etc.
The system is not otherwise active, so I'm certain it's not a resource
issue (or constraint thereof).
