Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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
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).
probably the issue with delivering into dovecot Maildir folders, described at
for some reason it wasn't triggered on FC4 and earlier.
