SA bayes not working / autolearn inactive?

Hi there,

I seem to be running into a similar problem, although I might have 
messed up my bayes config by wanting to adapt it to Mailwatch.
Somehow, my bayes db doesn't grow at all and just seems to sit there, 
sucking its thumb.

Unfortunately, I'm as stuck as you are on this issue, so I can't really 
help you out.
