I was getting a lot of unsures and figured out (read a post?) that
turning the option off might help.  It immediately helped matters, which
meant that I didn't fall back to plan 2 (retrain with equal numbers).

> The option has no effect on training speed

I meant 'training speed' as in the number of messages that have to be
trained in order for a similar (to human eyes) message to be correctly
classified.  A different phrase would have made that clearer, but I
can't think of one to use :)

I've occasionally wondered if there's any point keeping the
gary_combining_scheme stuff in there. No-one's using that any more, are
