Is there a limit to the length of a line in a recipe?
From the procmailrc(1) man page:
LINEBUF Length of the internal line buffers, cannot be
set smaller than 128. All lines read from the
rcfile should not exceed $LINEBUF characters
before and after expansion. If not specified,
it defaults to 2048. This limit, of course,
does not apply to the mail itself, which can
have arbitrary line lengths, or could be a
binary file for that matter.
