        version.c (Berkeley) 2/9/1999 (PHNE_22672)

Sendmail (HP's port w/ PHNE_22672 patch) on HP-UX 10.20 w/ procmail
version 3.14.  Here's the delivery options from our sendmail.cf.  We use
procmail as our local delivery agent for locking over NFS.  Yes, everyone
says don't do it, however w/ procmail and our NetApp filers doing the NFS
serving the locking is pretty reliable:

Mlocal,         P=/usr/bin/procmail, F=SAw5:|/@glDFMPhsfn, S=10/30, R=20/40,
                A=procmail -Y -a $h -d $u

I tried changing the procmailrc line to have the closing curly brace on a
new line.  Same results.

Also just commented out our local MANGLE_EXTENSIONS='....' changes to make
it use the default in html-trap.procmail.    Still got the same error
messages ending with:

procmail: Rescue of unfiltered data succeeded
procmail: No match on "^X-Content-Security: \[hawk\]

Diff'd the html-trap.procmail with a fresh copy and the only mods were a
different $Id string and some extra comment lines.  I copied over the fresh
one and tried it to no avail.

Also boggled.  But "Legend of the Rangers" was pretty good,
