yes, but this is not 188.8.131.52 from Ubuntu 18.04, this happend after
update to 184.108.40.206
I try to get a coredump from 220.127.116.11, but after my tests the basic
behaviour is the same as in 18.104.22.168 -> no new mails and no errormessage.
so iam not sure if this is really same problem or different.
I was able now to catch a coredump of 22.214.171.124
I hope this is helpful and leads to the original problem. output of bt
full is here: https://pastebin.com/awdpN4U3

Thats true, but worked for long years with dovecot. mbox+procmail long
time was only possibility to store mails and iam sure a lot of people
use it. Was there an official statement that support for mbox+procmail
Ubuntu 18.04 is fairly new OS and they offer still no 2.3 version (may
be same bug), they offer 126.96.36.199 and i think this problem will reach
users just with a delay.
Please help, current situation is very unsatisfying.
