After making the changes suggested below

( L%+=sb% : sb%=L% )

I'm now seeing a couple of messages with the extra blank line you
mention.   Unfortunate in practice, since it pushes the relevant text
below the testing range of the rule - but it still wasn't getting called
for those messages anyway.   :-(

I'm also seeing a different couple (out of about eight containing the
offending text) of messages where the 'twoticks' body text Rule *is* now
logged as being called... once only, whereas AntiSpam is configured to
test the first three lines.   These messages do not seem to contain the
extra blank line.

Still something wrong here, I think.

Terminology confusion - I assumed 'testing' referred to simulating
download via the Trial window, as opposed to actually deleting
anything!   :-)
