Markus,

Looks like spamlist.db is b0rked.  Likely it's been bad for a while and
you just didn't know it.  Now you've got to go back to basics :-(

All the way back would be to use whatever ham and spam you have and
create a brand new wordlist.

You might be able to go "halfway", i.e. use the tokens from goodlist.db
and register whatever spam you have available.  The two "goodlist"
commands, i.e. "bogoutil -d" and "cat | awk | bogoutil -l", will all you
to preserve your existing goodlist.  For spam, you'll have to register
whatever you've got.

You can protect against similar problems in the future by running
"bogoutil -d" (from a daily cron job) to have a backup.  Longer term,
we'll have Matthias' transaction code for BerkeleyDB which will give us
protection against database corruption.

Good luck!

David
