Unfortunately, yes, this is the case, the database is corrupt.  We're  
not really sure what still causes these occasional corruption  
problems (but have switched to a different database system for the  
upcoming 1.1).

Unfortunately, the only solution is to retrain from scratch (since  
SpamBayes learns quickly, this doesn't hurt that much - many users  
retrain from scratch periodically anyway).  Either delete the two  
database files:

'C:\Documents and Settings\jamesg\Application Data\SpamBayes 
'C:\Documents and Settings\jamesg\Application Data\SpamBayes 

Or use the "Training" tab of the SpamBayes Manager, ticking the  
"Rebuild entire database" box.
