If I choose "exit spambayes", nothing happens.  (I have to kill it with
the task manager).
If I choose "stop spambayes", nothing happens.  However, this doesn't
work for me with the source version either.

This seems to work fine for me.

I can install this, but not start it unless I use "-debug".  I tried to
stop it with cntl-c and got:
Stopping debug service.
The service is still shutting down...

Does that matter?  Stopping it via the ui worked fine.

I get a "can't find default message store" if I run this without
specifying a folder.  Does that matter?
