As you no doubt read on the procmail manpage:
| If the mailbox name ends in "/", then this
| directory is presumed to be a maildir folder; i.e., proc-
| mail will deliver the message to a file in a subdirectory

| named "new".
Now ... I obviously don't use maildir format, but to me, this would
imply a format something like:
I'm assuming that the leading "Maildir/" is redundant, as is the pointer
to the "new" folder.
