[Spambayes] uncomfortable pauses with outlook plugin...

An update:

I retrained the database on around 1000 items of Ham and Spam each, 
after deleting the old databases. Thus far, performance is dramatically 
improved, BUT TO BE FAIR, I've went on the road about two days after I 
did the retraining, so I've only used Outlook/SpamBayes for around an 
hour after the retraining occurred.

I'm heading home now (well, not NOW), and will be observing the speed 
extensively this weekend.

I'll report back if there are any problems.
