It's the binary version

I have just found the error!

I had ActivePython-2.3.2-232 installed and somehow it resulted in this
Once I uninstalled ActivePython, SpamBayes 0.9 work perfectly!!

I guess that SpamBayes is using a newer pythoncom32.dll than ActivePython
2.3.2-232 did. and that SpamBayes somehow found that dll before the one
distributed with SpamBayes.

Maybe this should be documented or changed so that SpamBayes allways uses
it's distributed dll's

Thank you for responding to my question and a BIIIIIG thank you to all that
develop SpamBayes! The time for handling Spam has reduced from 1 hour a day
to about 30 seconds!
