[Spambayes] DB_RUNRECOVERY error

I have been using Spambayes on Linux happily for about two months now.  I 
stopped the process for a machine reboot about 10 days ago.  Started it up 
again, all was well.  About 2 days later I started getting this:

Exception bsddb._db.DBRunRecoveryError: (-30982, 'DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, 
run database recovery -- fatal region error detected; run recovery') in 
<bound method _DBWithCursor.__del__ of <bsddb._DBWithCursor instance at 
0x404a37ec>> ignored

or a message like it in every email and my filtering stopped.  Right as the 
spam deluge from the viruses really got going.  Needless to say, you don't 
know how good you have it until it stops working (-:

I have two questions:

1) what could have caused it?
2) how can I fix it?

Sure, I can start all over but I am concerned about this happening again.  I 
just had the system trained well enough.
