[Spambayes] Duplicate messages handled differently...?

Hi Tony & All,

I just received another duplicate message. As happens occasionally,
one went to the Spam Folder, and the other to my Review Folder.

Here is the Log:

Loaded bayes database from 'C:\Documents and Settings\Kenneth
Sole\Application Data\SpamBayes\default_bayes_database.db'
Loaded message database from 'C:\Documents and Settings\Kenneth
Sole\Application Data\SpamBayes\default_message_database.db'

The above toolbar message is common - recreating the toolbar...
Message 'cleanse bijective ' in 'Desktop/Inbox' had a Spam
classification of 'Unsure'

Is the line:

"Processing missed spam in folder 'Inbox' by starting a timer"

the indication of my problem?

I should add that the log above is the one visible when I first
noticed the double message. I get mail frequently and wonder if the
log I have above might be from a run after the message was received.
How might I know that?

Thanks for any further help,

And they both scored 100%, which as spammy as you can get.  This means
it's not a problem with correctly scoring the message, but with moving
message to the spam folder.

Next time this happens could you grab a copy of your log file
(SpamBayes->SpamBayes Manager->Advanced->Diagnostics->View Log) and
send us
a copy of that?  Either there will be an error or there should be
clues in
the messages that are there that will let us figure out what's


Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
