Normally procmail is called from the MTA, e.g. Postfix.
If you use Postfix disable this line in /etc/postfix/main.cf:
mailbox_command = procmail -a "$EXTENSION"
Look at /var/log/mail.log for more information.

I don't know what the wiki exactly says. But what you can do is a
"service dovecot restart" as root.
I think your questions are more MTA questions then Dovecot questions.
