Thanks for checking and posting.  As pseudo-maintainer, that really makes things much easier for me, and is very much appreciated.

It is fixed for me. I vaguely recall having set some config option in the past to make this happen, but I couldn't quickly find any such option. I guess it's fine to close this.

Please recheck; I have the impression this is fixed now.

spamass-milter adds the following headers to messages:

X-Spam-Status: No, score=-2.8 required=5.0 tests=AWL,BAYES_05,
 UNPARSEABLE_RELAY autolearn=ham version=3.2.5
X-Spam-Checker-Version: SpamAssassin 3.2.5 (2008-06-10) on severn.wwwdotorg.org

which is great. However, these headers are appended to the set of headers in the message, rather than prepended. It'd be better if the new headers were prepended, so if the email gets routed through N servers, the spamassassin headers and "Received:" headers would intermingle in time order. This would better show where the message was scanned.
