I tried it and it didn't solve the problem but that's not
surprising when I tell you why.
Realisation suddenly dawned! I had been editing my user copy of
.fetchmailrc and although these had an effect if I ran Fetchmail
from the command line it had no effect when Fetchmail was running
as a demon because the demon is run as root! When I finally
thought to look in root's .fetchmailrc I found that it included
'keep' from previous testing runs.
How embarrasing. Sorry all.
All is now working as it should.
