Try again with the new binary - I expect the trace collector to work there.

That isn't true - I did look at them - I just didn't have enough 
concrete information to move forwards.

The fact this doesn't work implies spambayes isn't even being loaded. 
This is where I got lost before - there seems to be some confusion about 
whether spambayes is being loaded and then failing, or simply failing to 
load.  If the latter then it is expected that spambayes will not log any 
information - it can only do so once loaded.
