The truth is that an fs issue nuked half a day of my mail which should

Yes, we agree on that. What we no longer agree on is that this is
actually your situation! In the interests of clearing this up for
someone who reads this later looking for help, can we at least close
off by establishing what's really happening?
There are exactly two ways that I know of to file mail into multiple
mailboxes in procmail.
(1) Use the "c" flag on some recipes.
(2) Build up a space-separated list of directories [MH or maildir] and
deliver to all of them at once with a single recipe.
You insist that you aren't doing (1). However, (1) is also the only
case in which it's necessary to do error checking on each recipe ...
because, well, in (2) there only is one recipe, so "each" is sort of
So, please, what really is happening here? Is there some magic you
know that I don't that adds a third possibility to the list above? If
so, I'd like to learn it.
There is nothing more to resurrect from this. One can either succumb
and double the recipes, make some miracle to reinitiate procmail
development or let it r.i.p.
All true IF you are using a series of :0c: recipes to file into
multiple mailboxes. If you're doing it some other way I don't yet
know whether the "succumb" part is true.
