I suspect this is because you are using Python 2.4.  There were a couple of
issues with using 2.4 that have been since fixed in CVS, but were not
included in 1.0rc2 or 1.0.  If you have Python 2.3/2.2 available, try
running sb_server with that, and see if it works.  If it does, then you can
either using that Python version or use spambayes from CVS until the next
release comes out.


Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes.
