It seems that just having a server creates the rules.dat file. There's is no 
reason for this. The rules.dat file should first be created when the user 
actually has some filters.

it appears that rules.dat only exists from old builds or from imported profiles.
New profiles that are set up do not have a rules.dat file.

Should we be deleting the old rules.dat and replacing it by msgFilterRules.dat
rather than moving it, or would that break something else?
sorry for the spam.  making bugzilla reflect reality as I'm not working on these bugs.  filter on FOOBARCHEESE to remove these in bulk.

Still a valid bug then?
