There was a bug with sb_server in 1.1a1, which means that it  
shouldn't be used.  It was fixed in 1.1a2.

If you haven't enabled the x-crack-images option, you're not doing  
any OCR.  IAC, 1.1a1 doesn't have any of this (it predated the image  
spam issue).

Indeed :)

If you open a bug report and assign it to anadelonbrin, I'll try and  
find time to fix this.  For the meantime, you can open the  
bayescustomize.ini file in a text editor and change the server & port  
number there.
