But is this necessary to use it as normal user? I think it's not a good
behaviour. I'd like normal user could use maildrop even if root didn't
enable postfix options in a system wide way. I use it as normal user
with a pipe in ~/.forward to /usr/bin/maildrop and I think it should
works correctly. It's a possibility offered and documented in maildrop.

Did you change postfix configuration without reload? :o

If it happens once, it's a bug. If it happens twice, it's a feature.
If it happens more than twice, it's a design philosophy.
