This is it.  The postfix local transport always breaks up multiple
recipient messages into single messages for delivery.  If you want to
use single message store, you can't use the local transport for your
main delivery.  mailbox_transport is part of the local transport.

You'll need to change the local transport like this:

local_transport = lmtp:unix:/var/spool/postfix/sockets/lmtp

Note that if you're not using the postfix local transport, you won't
be able to directly use alias files or any other postfix feature that
the local transport provides.  You can still do aliases using the
virtual aliases system.  If you really need local transport features,
you can use the virtual alias system to forward mail to a subdomain
that uses the transport table to be directed to the real local

If you have any other questions about this sort of setup, let me
know.  I've got it working here, and it's great.
