What version of SpamBayes is this? Could you try 1.0rc1 and see if that
fixes the problem?

(1.0rc1 is available, but the announce post hasn't been sent out yet).

Could you manually run the second account with an existing
spambayes.messageinfo.db with '-i4' and capture the output?  This will churn
out the IMAP conversation and give clues about where something is going

Note that the output will include your username and password in plain text,
so blank those out before you send the log along.
