Description Han-Wen Nienhuys 2006-03-28 06:53:13 EST
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:



I have a procmail script that delivers mail into my Maildir/ based folder setup.
After upgrading to FC5, approx 1 out of 10 mails for my mailing list
subscriptions get misdelivered, the message is always

  procmail: Couldn't create or rename temp file ".LilyPond.lilypond-bugs/new/msg.A"

this happens with multiple lists, but the file name always is "msg.A". 
The message is then diverted to my normal inbox, while leaving the header in the
list Maildir.

I would normally suspect misconfiguration at my site, but it suspiciously
coincided with the fc5 upgrade.

this is with a system running sendmail and dovecot. This happens while my mail
client (thunderbird) is also opened (polling the mbox).
Comment 1 Han-Wen Nienhuys 2006-05-30 08:05:04 EDT
probably the issue with delivering into dovecot Maildir folders, described at 


for some reason it wasn't triggered on FC4 and earlier.
