[Spambayes] It all started with SP2

Could you please help me get SpamBayes to work again?
I've been using it successfully for over a year and once Microsoft SP2
was installed it quit working. Now, SpamBayes loads correctly, assigns
Spam values correctly, puts messages in the "Spam" and "Possible Spam"
folders correctly, but if I try to access any functions, it performs the
function but then it also shuts down Outlook. Thus, I can not click on
any Spambayes toolbar buttons (or dropdown list to configure) without it
shutting down Outlook as it performs the function.
I have read through your troubleshooting guide, reset the Outlook
toolbars by deleting outcmd.dat. Uninstalled SpamBayes and reinstalled
it. Nothing works to eliminate this problem. I also registered on
SourceForge to study the bugs there. It is similar to 956834, but not
the same. I am stuck and would appreciate your insights. Since I am not
a programmer, I don't know where to start to try to fix this. In the log
file below, I recovered a message from 'Possible Spam' folder, and it
performed the function, but then shut down Outlook.
