This was probably the correct choice, given the circumstances.  As long as
you only have one process reading/writing the file you should be fine.

What version of SpamBayes do you include with ThunderBayes?  I don't use
ThunderBayes, so I apologize if this is already the case, but would it be
possible to include the SpamBayes version when reporting the ThunderBayes
version?  The most ideal from my p.o.v. would be to list both and some
indication of whether SpamBayes was internal or external to ThunderBayes,
e.g., "1.0.1/1.1a4-ext" or "1.0.1/1.0.4-int".
