Actually, the *correct* way to use Maildir with procmail is just to have
a trailing slash on the foldername, e.g.:

# fedora-list
:0
* ^X-BeenThere *fedora-list redhat com
.INBOX.lists.fedora/

The trailing slash tells procmail that it's delivering to a Maildir and
it will put the message in 'new/'. That way you don't need to use a
lockfile.
