:(  Yes, this is a bug, sorry.  I've fixed this in CVS, so the fix will be
in 1.1a2.  For the moment, you can run from CVS source (or 1.0.4 source and
I can provide a patch), or do the annoying step of resetting the value every
time SpamBayes is launched.

You'll have to use the "regular expression" filter option (rather than the
'standard' headers).  You'll want the rule to look something like:


(the \w* just means there can be any amount of whitespace there).

This will work in Pegasus Mail, which means you can avoid the above bug for
the moment.
