[This is on Windows 2000, Python 2.3.3 with spambayes 1.0a7.]

I'm trying to start using spambayes with the imap filter and running 
into a problem.

When I run:

python sb_imapfilter.py -c -t -l 1 -v -i 1

I get:

*****  17:15.20 NO response: APPEND failed: Unknown flag: $Forwarded
.  17:15.70 BAD response: Bogus sequence in UID FETCH
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "sb_imapfilter.py", line 825, in ?
  File "sb_imapfilter.py", line 815, in run
  File "sb_imapfilter.py", line 675, in Filter
  File "sb_imapfilter.py", line 608, in Filter
  File "sb_imapfilter.py", line 395, in Save
    response = imap.uid("FETCH", self.uid, "(FLAGS INTERNALDATE)")
  File "D:\Python23\lib\imaplib.py", line 697, in uid
    typ, dat = self._simple_command(name, command, *args)
  File "D:\Python23\lib\imaplib.py", line 1000, in _simple_command
    return self._command_complete(name, self._command(name, *args))
  File "D:\Python23\lib\imaplib.py", line 837, in _command_complete
    raise self.error('%s command error: %s %s' % (name, typ, data))
imaplib.error: UID command error: BAD ['Bogus sequence in UID FETCH']

What generally happens is that 1 or 2 emails seem to get copied on my 
imap server and get a X-Spambayes-MailId header added.

I checked the bug database and the last 2 months of email archives and 
haven't seen anything like this.  Before I start running this thru a 
tunnel to try and see what's going on (I have no python experience and 
only a smattering of imap knowledge), anyone have any suggestions?

Much thanks,
