Ok, As I read this, basically you're saying that I need to append the / 
to my delivery dirs?  Or that I need to append the / and only deliver to 
Maildir, instead of Maildir/new?

Here's my .procmailrc
# .procmailrc
# routes incoming mail to appropriate destinations
MAILDIR=$HOME/.Maildir # all mailboxes live here
DEFAULT=$MAILDIR/new/ # This is where incoming mail goes
* ^X-Spam-Flag: YESS
* ^X-Spam-Level: \*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*

I changed the .procmailrc to append the / to the dir.  Is that all I 
need to do?
