Re: [nmh-workers] I Could Have Sworn that the inc Command used to work.

Yes, that should work.  I'd check to see what switches, if any,
you're passing to inc (inc -help will show them).

      Should 'inc' manually pull in any messages in
/var/spool/mail/UID?

I'm not sure what the default maildrop is on Debian.  I would first
check if you have a MailDrop: entry in your profile that overrides
it.  inc has a -file switch, so you could try specifying your
maildrop explicitly.

I'm also not sure what your cron jobs do, and how procmail gets
called.  Are you using rcvstore?  Even if yes, inc should still
work.

One more thought:  make sure your inbox is writeable and is not
on a full partition.
