You are right. But it doesn't matter. If I used my --dbpath like above, two
files bayes_seen and bayes_toks were created below this folder. If I use
--dbpath ..../bayes/test, then I get two files test_seen and test_toks in
that folder. I'll correct this of course, but it works like before and my
problem is still there.

This is a good argument. I' ll think about that. The folder is a cyrus Imap
folder. I used the [0-9]*. expression, because each cyrus folder contains
messages with numbered filename with a trailing dot and four cyrus.* files

That's right. But is this a problem?
First, I learn ham from the inbox folder, then spam from the junk folder. If
a mail is moved to the junk folder meanwhile and no expunge was done, then
it's not relearned as ham again and learned from the junk folder as spam

The problem is, that I can't persuade about 120 users to store all their ham
below a defined folder. They want to sort their mails into several folders
they created by their own.
