At least the "falling back" still happens.

I'm using home-directory user_prefs, so I run spamass-milter with -u.  Without -u, I get:

spamd: setuid to root succeeded
spamd: still running as root: user not specified with -u, not found, or set to root, falling back to nobody

mkdir /root/.spamassassin: Permission denied at ...

And other errors related to permissions.

With -u, I get:

spamd: handle_user unable to find user: <email alias>
