There are various ways to check this, e.g.:

  1. If you're sure that nothing else on the machine will try and use  
the same ports as SpamBayes, then you can check to see whether a  
connection is accepted (either to a proxy port or to the HTML UI port).

  2. You can grep through ps and check for a 'python  
sb_server.py' (or however you have it setup) process.

  3. You could add code to the open_platform_mutex function in  
sb_server to open some sort of lock for your platform (e.g. create a  
directory, and delete it on close) and use that to check whether  
sb_server is running.
