The confusion (and bug) here is my fault. I added in code that means that
if you click the *other* headings, the messages are sorted by that column
(within the three classifications). The explanatory text at the top
probably needs to be clearer. I don't think I even considered people doing
a sort *after* clicking the classification buttons. This can probably be
fixed; I've added a bug report
1702&atid=498103>) and assigned it to me (although if someone else wants to
fix it first...)

The only thing I can think of here is that SpamBayes is using two separate
sets of databases. Does your config file specify a full path, or a relative
one? Would it always pick up your config file? (because it's in the
BAYESCUSTOMIZE envar, or because it's in the Windows Application
Data/SpamBayes/Proxy directory, rather than in the current working
directory). What version are you using?
Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes. This
way, you get everyone's help, and avoid a lack of replies when I'm busy.
