Does CRM114 use the number of trained ham and trained spam *messages* as
variables in its probability calculation?  If not, then you wouldn't expect
that deleting infrequently used tokens would do much damage.  AFAIK,
SpamBayes uses the trained message counts in the probability calculation and
those becomes inaccurate if you delete individual tokens.
