Longer messages are more likely to run into this problem than shorter ones.
Since, in fact, procmail shouldn't even waste effort writing the text to

Can't one avoid writing *any* of the header or body? Something like:
:0c:log.gz.lock # now I think you need to name the lock
JUNK="`/usr/local/gnu/bin/date +'%e/%m/%y, %k:%M'`"
JUNK="`echo $VAR8 lines, $JUNK, $VAR9, $VAR10 | gzip >> log.gz`"
or am I missing something? (Quite possible :)
