My procmail days are a thing of the past, but perhaps I can be of
assistance. If exim invokes procmail there is no -a option and $1 is
unset and procmail ends up with "/" as desitination. It does not seem
to regard that as a vaild destination and falls back to delivery to
DEFAULT (which is /var/mail/$LOGNAME. Setting
might fix your problem.
