Ok now after some testing, there is in fact a problem:
I never receive anything in SPAM.HAM (which is the place for possible
false positive)

More concrete  a couple of mails, which are NOT in my BBDB and NOT in
my blacklist ending up in SPAM.REAL instead of SPAM.HAM
    >> I get
    >> M-: (spam-split 'spam-use-BBDB 'spam-use-blacklist "SPAM.REAL")
    >> "SPAM.REAL"
    >> M-: (spam-split 'spam-use-BBDB-exclusive "SPAM.HAM") "SPAM.HAM"

Again, when I apply the above functions I get "SPAM.REAL" *AND*
"SPAM.HAM" that looks wired it should be either "SPAM.REAL" *OR*
(exclusively) "SPAM.HAM".

I send you privately the mail in question together with my blacklist
(my BBDB seems not relevant here.)

Right, but could I use in principle spam-stat, even on a imap server,
either with agentize or with 
(setq    nnimap-split-download-body   t)?
