[Spambayes] imapfilter

Hi all,

I finally found a little time to suck down and try to install the
imapfilter.  Unfortunately, I didn't get too far (see below).  I've read
a bunch of recent archive articles and I was just wondering -- has there
been any thought about piggybacking imapfilter on Twisted?  It
supposedly has some very good imap support (the cvs version is the
divmod.org rewrite), although I haven't yet tried it myself.

In any event, I have a couple of minor patches which I'd like to check
in (like not trying to unpack the password option if -p is given), if
that's okay.

Alright, on to my current problem.  On my server, I'm running RH7.3's
imapd (imap-2001a-10), but I connect to it over an ssh tunnel.  So here
is my bayescustomize.ini file:

-----snip snip-----
server: localhost:9143
username: barry
unsure_folder: Unsure
spam_folder: Junk
ham_train_folders: INBOX
spam_train_folders: Junk
-----snip snip-----

But when I run "imapfilter.py -v -p -D bayes.db -t" and enter my
password, I get the following traceback:

Any clues?
