Default Random procmail filter failures.

Hi all,

I'm seeing a random issue with my procmail filters (only on email from
this list) where once every so often, it will fail to filter a
message. I am sorting by the to/cc email address, and this rule works
on 99.9% of posts, however every now and again, I see something like
this happen:

From centos-bounces@centos.org Sat Jan 5 01:57:28 2008
Subject: Re: [CentOS] What's up with the mailing list spam?
Folder: /home/netwiz/Maildir/.CentOS-Discussion/new/
msg.br32 4852

procmail: Match on "(To|Cc).*centos@centos.org*"
procmail: Couldn't create or rename temp file "/home/netwiz/
procmail: Assigning "LASTFOLDER=/home/netwiz/Maildir/new/
procmail: Notified comsat: "netwiz@0:/home/netwiz/Maildir/new/

Most posts work perfectly, and show up as such:

From centos-bounces@centos.org Sat Jan 5 02:13:15 2008
Subject: Re: [CentOS] Firewall frustration

procmail: Opening "/home/netwiz/Maildir/.CentOS-Discussion/new/msg.gr32"
procmail: Acquiring kernel-lock
procmail: Notified comsat: "netwiz@0:/home/netwiz/Maildir/.CentOS-

File and directory permissions on my Maildir directory etc are fine,
and I'm at a loss to explain this. I've run fsck over the disk with no
sign of errors.

Has anyone stumbled upon this before?
