Followup #2: The anomaly reported above is probably a Firefox problem. When I 
loaded the Spambayes configuration page in Konqueror, it displayed properly 
without the doubling up of the options sections.
Where things stand now in summary: 

With my normal configuration an attempt to get mail results in a long delay 
and then an error "unable to connect to localhost"
If I remove localhost from Kmail's configuration and put back the ISP and port 
110, I connect just fine.
From my browser, I can connect to the Spambayes configuration page just fine.

Any suggestions gladly accepted...
