I saw the same thing on my AIX 4.3.3 system (just the recipe for
'Sanitizing MIME attachment headers' failed) and traced it down to
the ksh in AIX not allowing a command line as long as the Perl
script for that recipe.

I fixed it by crudely hacking the procmailrc file to have
an additional environment variable:


and then I ripped the perl code for that recipe out of html-trap.procmail
and stripped all the shell continuations (the #\ at each line end)
and wrapped it with:

while (<>) {
... the ripped and stripped code ...
} continue {

and saved it in /etc/procmail/san-mime

Finally, I editted html-trap.procmail and replaced the perl code part
of the recipe so that it read:

  :0 fw

I know that this breaks (even further) the concept of the filter
being "self-contained", but I saw no way around it for AIX.
