i have tried different versions of spamassassin, the behavior from my previous post is of the latest stable i downloaded from the web - in this case the system load is normal (have not checked the memory).
But when i install spamassassin package from my distro repository, i get VERY high load something like this just happened about a minute ago:
top - 12:42:19 up 126 days, 23:39, 4 users, load average: 77.91, 94.27, 70.22
both versions are tested with the same settings of spamd
