I had the same problem and the only solution I could find was to make all
procmail files owned $user.procmail after making a group "procmail".  I also
added cyrus and postfix to the "sasl" group and added cyrus and postfix to the
procmail group and added cyrus to the postfix group.  

Someone suggested I use the new ACL features that the newer Linux kernels
support, but I have not yet learned how this works.
