Amavisd routinely fails to correctly tag Spam via SpamAssassin calls

Found another excellent example today.  This clearly fails URIDNSBL 
checking, yet Amavis never even reports it checked via URIDNSBL!

X-Virus-Scanned: amavisd-new at
X-Spam-Flag: NO
X-Spam-Score: 0.743
X-Spam-Status: No, score=0.743 tagged_above=-10 required=3
	tests=[BAYES_00=-0.05, RDNS_NONE=0.793]
	autolearn=no autolearn_force=no

Yet I run it through SA on the command line 5 seconds later:

Mar 24 15:13:55.990 [22070] dbg: uridnsbl: domain "" 
listed (URIBL_DBL_SPAM):

X-Spam-Status: No, score=3.8 required=5.0 tests=RDNS_NONE,TVD_RCVD_IP,
X-Spam-Level: ***
X-Spam-Checker-Version: SpamAssassin 3.4.0 (2014-02-07) on

*ANY* insight into how to debug why Amavis is utterly failing to scan 
obvious spam would be much appreciated.
