I got it working, Procmail dumping into Evolution's folders, but as you
said, the files have been out of sync a couple of times and I believe a
few mails never showed up.  My logs show one was delivered, but
Evolution never got it.

I will look into having Evolution import my mail somehow.  I am not sure
how I would do that, and Evolution's filters don't seem to work yet.
