The fact that SpamBayes keeps adding information about the error to the log
is addressed in 1.1 (which will be released at some point in the
not-too-distant future).  However, the thing to do is figure out *why* the
error is occurring, so that we can stop that (i.e. address the cause, not
the symptom).

Does the log not have anything more than "warning: unhandled exception"?  If
not, could you run sb_tray.exe in a command window until the error occurs
and copy the entire error message (the whole message should get printed to
the window) to the list?  That should tell us exactly what it is that isn't
