spamassassin-dev: No RP_MATCHES_RCVD at reception time, lots in

No RP_MATCHES_RCVD at reception time, lots in masscheck

People on the users list are complaining about getting lots of false
negatives due to RP_MATCHES_RCVD. RuleQA doesn't say particularly good
things about its rank or score:
http://ruleqa.spamassassin.org/20111217/RP_MATCHES_RCVD/detail

Neither of those things really concern me, because I know the reasons for
score selection can be complicated.

What does concern me is that ruleqa says 29% of my ham hits it, but *none*
of my ham actually has a hit on that rule in my mailboxes. It's only
showing up in masscheck, not when I get the mail, and not when I manually
re-run spamassassin on an email that masscheck says hit it.

The latest example that masscheck says hit this rule:
http://www.chaosreigns.com/sa/missing_RP_MATCHES_RCVD.txt

As far as I can tell, that email should hit RP_MATCHES_RCVD. Because these
have the same domain:

Return-Path: <sandrakoroma@anyemails.com>
Received: from anyemails.yesup.com (mail.anyemails.com [199.21.148.38])

I'm running trunk synced about a month ago.

This is the output of running "spamassassin -tD" on it, so you can see it's
loading Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::WLBLEval:

Any idea why I'm not getting hits on this rule when I run it manually, but
am getting lots of hits via masscheck?
