Procmail and global mail archive.

Hopefully someone can help, or can make a suggestion on what I am doing
I am using postfix and procmail (3.22-16ubuntu3) on a Ubuntu(7.10)
system to create a global email archive
(/var/backup/mail_archive_<date>/<user>) of all received email.
It is generally working well, except every I've been seeing 'procmail'
segfaults in the logs. The sender gets a 'failed to deliver' messages,
while the recipient receives no message at all..
(This is not how I would like it work.. failure of my archiving setup
shouldn't affect delivery.)
I need a fix, and/or a suggestion on how to make it more robust, as it
'feels' like it is message dependant. (I see nothing for days, then a
stack of errors.)
Ok.. some more information..
The original message received be the sender contained..
Command died with signal 11: "/usr/bin/procmail". Command output:
I up'ed the LINEBUF setting in the /etc/prcomailrc file (see below) but
I'm now seeing segfaults for procmail in the logs.
[17752114.220056] procmail : 1 Time(s)
[17752131.406728] procmail : 1 Time(s)
[17752749.103770] procmail : 1 Time(s)
[17752766.292519] procmail : 1 Time(s)
[17753383.952322] procmail : 1 Time(s)
[17753401.133164] procmail : 1 Time(s)
NOTE: The users reporting the errors, don't have their own .procmailrc
file. Here is the global file.
