Yes, my fault. I have experimented with it in the past on smaller
systems, but never wanted to implement it on any system that was
particularly critical based on what I've read here.

I had recently implemented it on a smaller production system based on
some documentation that I read outside of spamassassin.org, that also
talked about using bayes with mysql.

Hope that helps to explain what happened, and I'll be sure to read
more thoroughly before implementing on my larger production systems.

Thanks,
Alex
