Issue with per-user bayes filter

Hi all,

I'm still trying to setup per-user bayes filter. The sa-learn part work 
as expected but I encounter difficulties with amavis. I'm using a SQL 
database to store per-user policies. I can see in the logs that amavis 
seems to find the right record and sends the information to spamassassin :

scanner SpamAssassin

But the *bayes_vars* table (spamassassin side) stays empty! Do I 
misunderstand something?

I'm using amavis 2.7.1 and spamassassin 3.3.2 on Debian Wheezy.

Thanks for your help,
