[Spambayes] I did something stupid...

...after setting up spambayes with Outlook XP (training, telling it to
watch the Inbox and move spam), I decided the icons were too far to the
right so I right-clicked on the toolbar, dragged them down to the next
line, and then Outlook froze. In particular the customize dialog was
unresponsive (although I could still move icons around on the toolbar).
I was forced to shut Outlook down through taskmanager...

Now whenever I start Outlook, I see the message below from
win32traceutil.py, and the taskbar icons are non-functional. I couldn't
find any clues on how to uninstall and try again (I did run addin.py
--unregister, and it said it was successful, but still the same message
after running addin.py again). 

Any help or pointers to documentation would be greatly appreciated.
