The most common place I've seen this is when you try to open a bsddb db file
with pickle.load(). Did you have a spambayes install already on the
machine? (It seems like it picked up an existing messageinfo db, which was
bsddb, but your configuration file is set to use a pickle).
One of the old WHAT_IS_NEW files has stuff about this (1.0a7?). What should
happen when the user changes from bsddb to a pickle (or vice versa)? It
seems that any existing database should be converted - I guess that would
mean adding in a check somewhere before the db's are opened that verifies
that they are the correct type, and, if not, does the conversion. Seems
like a lot of bother though :)
If you move aside the message info it's finding does it work?
