I don't use procmail, so my error messages were different, but I was not
able to make the latest Debian 2.6.* work with 1.1a6. When I was using
Squeeze, I had to run against python 2.5 to make 1.1a6 work.
That trick no longer works in Wheezy, but I have had success with Skip's
latest 1.1b1 found at
against python 2.5, 2.6, and 2.7.
The 1st thread is the Squeeze thread and the 2nd is the Wheezy thread.
