[Spambayes] Multiple XP Users Confuses sb_service

I'm stumped by this problem. My wife and I use Outlook express, and we each have our own account on our XP machine. When we both use the sb_tray program, the last one to start it up on his/her account apparently dictates where SpamBayes will retrieve its configuration information. Seeing this, I decided that maybe the best thing to do was to install the sb_service to provide a central mechanism for filtering spam on our computer.
The service starts automatically, and that seems to work fine. I can login to either of our accounts and retrieve email. However, the sb_tray program seems confused. Whoever runs the program first prevents the other one from running it. The first person to run it gets an active tray program through which he/she can review messages and configure the server. If I login to the second account, the sb_tray program doesn't work -- it says SpamBayes isn't running. Even if I shut down the first user's instance of the tray program, the second user can never seem to get an active connection to the service. Is this a known bug? How can two outlook express users review messages via the sb_tray program?
