Local SpamAssassin not working as of August 30

as of yesterday afternoon, August 30, my local .forward.postfix and .procmailrc files appear to be being ignored. my local installation of SpamAssassin (not the one you choose on the web panel for DH) was not working. no email is being sent through my filters at all. is anyone else having similar SA problems? suggestions would be appreciated if you know of a possible solution; however, i think that this has nothing to do with my local settings as they have not changed in over a month.
