Why are you doing it this way?

('Cause it's supposed to be faster? Is it?)

Most immediately, I'd blow away (well, comment) that setting, and
just use the .forward method of calling procmail and make sure you
have LOGFILE set to a file you can write to and LOGABSTRACT set to
all in your .procmailrc. Don't try to sort any mail, just see that
something's showing up this way.

That's not a problem as long as you're not running nscd (name server
cache daemon) on the local machine (in which that file had really
better exist).
