 That is very strange. Did you change the msgsperfolder value (or anything else) between initially generating the archive from the mbox and updating it? Changing msgsperfolder on an existing archive is expected to produce strange results.
 If that isn't what went wrong, please send me your .hmrc and the command lines that you used (both the original one that created the archive and the one that does the update with procmail).

 I haven't created a recent tarball, so I suggest cvs.
