[Spambayes] Exit codes 11 and -6 from sb_filter

Today a message sneaked through with no classification.  Looking in the
procmail log showed that sb_filter.py had returned an exit status 11.
The offending message is plain-text and has nothing wrong with it that I
can spot, and when sb_filter.py is run via the command line it gets
an X-Spambayes-Classification: spam; 0.92 quite correctly.   A grep
around in the Spambayes code and in the main Python 2.3 code doesn't
turn up any explicit sys.exit(11) and attempts to get a full trace out
of sb_filter while it's running from procmail have failed.

There's another message which also fails classification via procmail
with exit status of -6,  but correctly gets a ham 0.6 on the commandline.

Need help from someone with a bigger bag of clues I think...
