Barring some fairly complex MD setup in order to get per-user 
configuration (or CanIt, I would imagine), then yes, it always 
appears to be the same user in SA (and by default, it's the defang 
user).  Per-user MD/SA setup, with or without Bayes, isn't trivial.  
However, that's not necessarily a problem.  In the SA 2.50 
documentation, they talk about requirements for a site-wide Bayes 
database.  Although a per-user Bayes system would be more accurate, I 
expect a system-wide Bayes database will be better than none.
