See, now this makes me wonder if it's not Evolution w' remote
mailboxes that's the real issue.  I don't use Evolution and POP3, as I
imagine the majority of people here are doing, I'm hitting two IMAP
servers and doing IMAP actions on both, all folders and mail are
stored remotely, and the filters run on them that way, all I download
is headers or copies of messages when I read them.

I don't have a POP server that gets enough / any mail to make it
useful as a control subject.

Meh... I should really just switch back to Pine/Fetchmail and run my
own mail server.  Even IF that means back to procmail recipe
