Well, I've done a --force-expire, and got:

now... and my SA/MS is timing out once again, now I've re-enabled Bayes
with use_bayes...

I'm almost tempted to have a normal SA run without Bayes, and then use
MCP to reprocess the message again with Bayes (or vice versa)... the
fact that the Bayes is making it time out, and then effectively timing
out the rest of the stuff despite it probably being 'positive' in a lot
of cases is proving far from jolly...
