Yup. I dug through the procmail code myself -- and you are almost right. The
problem isn't with the fstat part -- as you might have seen there is a
susp_rc label there, and further down in the code there is a goto susp_rc.

The problem is one the cases in the if-statement enclosing the block with
the susp_rc (it seems the permissions are wrong, just as you suggest). I
have hacked together a temporary fix for now -- but I suspect the problem is
due to that procmail sees the /coda/dave directory as belonging to dave:coda
and not dave:users (my primary group is users on my system).

I'm going to dig around a bit more now that I know what is wrong -- thanks
for all your help!
