>:(.  This ought to be fixed, and certainly both my testing and the
experience of others indicated it ought to be.  What exactly is the log
filling up with?  Could you please post the line(s) that are being repeated?
If they all differ, could you post a few examples?

If you run from source there are no log files; everything is output to
stdout/stderr (i.e. if you're running in a console window then it'll be put
there (or you can pipe it somewhere), if you're not, then it'll vanish
without a trace).

Most people will reply both to the list and to you individually, as I have.


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