How long ago did you filter the inbox with 008.1?  If it was some time ago,
then this is probably just because you've done training since those messages
were filtered, which effected their score.

There are a few quite minor changes in the tokenizer with 0.9, but it seems
highly unlikely that those would cause this sort of effect.  If you look at
the clues for the newly filtered mail, do they make sense?  An example set
of clues would really help here.
