It appears that a particular mail is malformed, and SpamBayes isn't
robust enough.
Looking inside the traceback, the code arond like 1371 of tokenize.py
            subjcharsetlist = email.Header.decode_header(x)
        except (binascii.Error, email.Errors.HeaderParseError):
            subjcharsetlist = [(x, 'invalid')]

It looks like that except clause should be changed to include ValueError
at least - eg:
        except (binascii.Error, email.Errors.HeaderParseError,

Could you please try that change and see if it goes away?  I've also CCd
spambayes-dev in the hope that someone there will offer some opinion if
this is indeed a fix that should be checked in...
