[Mailman-Users] spam checks before membership checks

I emailed this same question before and got the suggestion to upgrade to 
2.1.6rc4. I have upgraded and it still seems to do the same thing.
Emails that get marked by spamassassin are making through the filters 
and are getting moderated as non-member posts.

So all our emails go throug spamassasin and get tagged with a certain 
line if they are spam. I have this filter on all our lists:

header_filter_rules = [('X-NCEAS-Mercury-MailScanner-SpamCheck: spam', 
3, 0)]

This is a header line that is in an email that made it through:
X-NCEAS-Mercury-MailScanner-SpamCheck: spam, SBL+XBL,
    SpamAssassin (score=1.897, required 3, HTML_40_50 0.09,

Am I doing something wrong on the filtering? Why does it seem to 
moderate as non member before it does the header_filter_rule ?
Any suggestions are appreciated.
