We found the offending rule.  From a note from my sysadmin:

FH_DATE_PAST_20XX The date is grossly in the future

It has a score of 3.2 and is triggered for all 2010 and beyond dates.  This is a bug in SpamAssassin that has been fixed in version 3.3.

For details, see:

So, if you're using Spam Assassin before v3.2, you may want to adjust your rules or upgrade to 3.3.
