Documentation states:

    -L, --local

               Do not perform any
    network accesses while learning
    details about the mail messages.
    This will speed up the learning
    process, but may result in a
    slightly lower accuracy.

               Note that this is
    currently ignored, as current
    versions of SpamAssassin will not
    perform network access while
    learning; but future versions may.

This is INCORRECT.  Network access occurs BY DEFAULT.

Suggest confirm issue and update documentation.


sa-learn --version ... SpamAssassin version 3.1.7-deb

I strongly suspect similar behavior in later versions.
