The only way is to run from source.

I suppose "remains in TEMP forever" is technically correct, but it gives the
wrong impression.  There are 4 SpamBayes log files.  A new one is created
each time SpamBayes is started up - at that time the oldest log file is
removed.  So although you always have four logs there, they are continually
different, and should always be pretty small (unless you're getting a lot of
errors, or have changed the verbosity options).

You can, of course, run some sort of scheduled program to clear out your
temp directory at whatever interval you like.


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