Anyone know what's responsible for producing these ridiculous compressed
tracebacks?  I promise we're not trying to hide the source code <wink>.

I'm afraid your database has become corrupt.  We don't yet know why this
happens, although it seems most likely after Outlook gets shut down
incorrectly (e.g., if the machine is turned off before the database is fully
written).  The only known cure at this time is to retrain the database from
scratch (the "rebuild entire database" option in the training dialogue).
