Well, I have also got the error

D:\Python23\Scripts>python sb_imapfilter.py -b
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "sb_imapfilter.py", line 121, in ?
    from spambayes.UserInterface import UserInterfaceServer
  File "D:\PYTHON23\Lib\site-packages\spambayes\UserInterface.py", line 
89, in ?

    from spambayes import Stats
  File "D:\PYTHON23\Lib\site-packages\spambayes\Stats.py", line 34, in ?
    from spambayes.message import msginfoDB
ImportError: cannot import name msginfoDB

As I have said, I am using the latest CVS from the public server.  I 
have set my mysql server to have the default values of having a user 
root, password {none} with a database of  'spambayes'.  My 
bayescustomize.ini is as follows


I have tried the default "messageinfo_storage_file:" and 
"persistent_storage_file:" lines, as well as setting them to 
"messageinfo_storage_file:host:localhost user:root 
pass:dbname:spambayes" and "persistent_storage_file:host:localhost 
user:root pass:dbname:spambayes"
AND tried setting the last lines without the password part.

As you can see, I've tried everything I could think of.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
