Looks like a problem with the IDs file.

Trace @ PROCcheck_IDs
Trace @  PROCidsError
Trace @   PROCclose
Trace @   ENDPROC
Trace @   FNoT
Trace @   ENDFN

[snip many]

Trace @   FNoT
Trace @   ENDFN
Trace @   PROCreport
Trace @    FNleaf
Trace @    ENDFN
Trace @    PROCwimp_report
Trace @    ¦PROCaLog
Trace @    ¦ENDPROC
21:42:39.10 ** WimpError ** from AntiSpam
  Error  : &00000000
  Message: Error 'ARM BBC BASIC V version 1.44 (C) Acorn 1989
Trace @    ENDPROC
Trace @   ENDPROC
Trace @  ENDPROC

And I seem to have IDs-0000 to 00015 in AntiSpam's Choices directory,
which suggests that a lot of renaming has indeed been going on.
I can't work out yet why the application is sometimes objecting to the
file and sometimes not, though - or why I'm getting this weird message
instead of the "IDs file corrupted?" one that it looks as if I ought to
be getting at this point....
