I recently received a mail regarding SpamBayes refusing to work:
> Possible reasons:
> Outlook 2002, Dutch version.
> File "C:\Python22\lib\ConfigParser.py", line 306, in getfloat
> return self.__get(section, float, option)
> File "C:\Python22\lib\ConfigParser.py", line 300, in __get
> return conv(self.get(section, option))
> exceptions.ValueError: invalid literal for float(): 0.20
Addiing the following anywhere before the file is parsed:
> import locale
> locale.setlocale(locale.LC_NUMERIC, "en")
Corrects the problem. However, it is unclear to me what the ramifications
of this would be.
Anyone have a clue what we should do about this?
