This has definitely been reported before. I thought that a bug was
submitted and that Mark checked in a patch, but I can't find the bug
anywhere on sf, and I can't find a fix in the check-in archives either.
(Am I imagining the whole thing??).
Anyway, Mark will probably get to this when he has a chance. I
*thought* that what happened was that spambayes set the locale to
English within the plugin and that solved it.
