I am wondering why you have been using procmail with cyrus.
You should deliver to cyrus malboxes using LMTP with unix socket or with 
You can easily change your configuration.
Also I think it is not very efficient to call the deliver process for 
every message to be delivered to a malbox.

IF you use sendmail + cyrus you do not need to use procmail, simply use 
the cyrusv2 definition sendmail macro.
