Thanks for the time and all the details.

I just installed today the Python 2.3a1 from the wxPython sf page:

Previously, I had spambayes running with the stock Apple Python 2.2

I had a confirmation from Robin Dunn who did the package that there 
was something wrong in it.

>the fink distribution

I downloaded really fex things from Fink. My only motivation to get 
it was to try X. Now that there is an Apple version, I don't use the 
fink one anymore.

I'll give it a try tomorrow.

There is still another issue however with 2.3 and pop3proxy that I 
sent in another email:

Some more info:

This error showed up since install of 2.3a1. It does not happens with 
my normal setup with Python 2.2
I removed all mail coded with accented chars and kept only english 
mails with no accented chars, no error.

Recently using MacOSX.......
