There must be something different about your installation of
SpamAssassin.  Among the reasons why I think that some version of
SpamAssassin works dccproc is that some people report spam that
has been detected by SpamAsssassin using dccproc to SpamCop.
SpamAssassin adds a block of lines to the message that says why
SpamAssassin thinks a message is spam.  One such line is like this:

http://www.rhyolite.com/anti-spam/dcc/dcc-tree/dcc.html is; Tue, 16 Jul 2002 04:11:21 GMT

SpamCop decides that added line is a spam advertisement for Rhyolite
Software in the original message and sends complaints about spam.
(I don't think much of SpamCop.)

Is all of this happening on a single computer, including the building
of the DCC programs?  Did you compile cdcc and dccproc on another
machine and copy them to or did you replace the
map file on another machine and copy it to 
If so, are both computers Intel systems running RedHat?
