The fact that procmail can sometimes deliver to /var/mail/USERNAME in
cases of error is a known issue.  I have a script that periodically
delivers mail from that directory to work around it.  The question is
why that script did not seem to work for the past month.  I'm going to
add some logging so that I can get an idea for what's going on.
