this looks like your new bogofilter might be using a different data base
version than the old one. How exactly did you do the upgrade?

What do these commands print:

ldd `which bogofilter`
file ./spamlist.db
file ./goodlist.db

Can you reinstall the older version (with RPM, pass --oldpackage) and
use the older bogoutil -d on your files? If so, save the output of
bogoutil -d, we'll then see how we load that into your new bogofilter
