  I'm not sure what's going on, but i cleared Bayes, and set 
use_auto_learn 0
and then relearned from HAM/Spam messages, and checking for yesterday, I
got 12 spam, every single one had BAYES_00 set.

I do get a vast amount of spam coming in here, so that 12 is  down from
several hundred spam that got marked correctly.
