Just tried it again. Here's what I entered at the command prompt,
and the results in each case:

1. >sb_imapfilter.py -c -t -l 5

and engine SpamBayes Engine Version 0.3 (January 2004).

2. >sb_imapfilter.py -b -v
SpamBayes IMAP Filter Version 0.4 (May 2004)
and engine SpamBayes Engine Version 0.3 (January 2004).
