Hello,

Are you logging an error like the following in your spamd.log?

prefork: oops! no idle kids in need_to_del_server?
at /usr/share/perl5/Mail/SpamAssassin/SpamdForkScaling.pm line 856.

Check the size of your spamd.log log file.

A log file that hits the size 2715520757 caused the problem for me.

The fix was to run:

> sudo cp /dev/null spamd.log
