If you recall, I replied to this thread earlier saying I had no problems
with beta8 -- deliver (lda from cvs, for sieve) wrote a single From line
into Maildir files and it was the envelope sender.  That was with
postfix-2.3.2 and mailbox_command = /path/to/deliver.  (no options)

I just upgraded to rc15 and deliver (now from dovecot itself but with
sieve plugin) with postfix-2.3.3 acts identically -- no problems.
