Ah, my mistake.  I mistook your upload of 

 procmail (3.12-0) unstable; urgency=high
   * New upstream release. Fixes some security bugs.


 procmail (3.12-1) frozen unstable; urgency=high
   * New upstream release. Fixes some security bugs.
   * #define GROUP_PER_USER in config.h to allow writeable rcfiles when
     the group is the user's default group.
   * Added KNOWN_BUGS to the doc directory.
   * suid procmail to avoid non-suidness window when upgrading.

which occurred roughly 16 hours later.


Sadly, it didn't make any difference, hence my confusion.  Guess it's part
of that big "anti-Santiago" conspiracy.

Antti asked a question.  I answered it.
