PGP messages getting flagged as spam

I just received word from one of my regular correspondents that his
email server has begun flagging PGP traffic as spam.  I haven't seen
this come up often (ever?) in the lists before, so I'm operating on the
assumption that this may be a new problem people should be aware of.

SpamAssassin is giving results like this:

> X-Spam-Status: Yes, score=5.6 required=5.0
> 	UPPERCASE_25_50 autolearn=disabled version=3.0.4
> X-Spam-Report:
> 	*  2.3 UNIQUE_WORDS BODY: Message body has many words used only >	
> 	*  3.3 BAYES_60 BODY: Bayesian spam probability is 60 to 80%
> 	*      [score: 0.7031]
> 	*  0.0 UPPERCASE_25_50 message body is 25-50% uppercase

So, if you're running SpamAssassin, might want to see about tweaking
some rules.  :)
