That's rather odd.  I'm running with "Headers to display" set to "Subject
From" with no space after From and with the "Display score in message
review" option set to Yes, and I get the Score column just fine.

Can you reproduce this reliably?  For example, does the Score column stop
showing up as soon as you delete the extra space at the end and then
reappear every time you add it?  Also, check and make sure that there
actually is a space after From.  I just tried appending the trailing space
and saving the configuration, and when I went back to the Advanced
Configuration page the extra space had been automatically removed.
