IMO, yes.

Huh?  Do you mean that you "upgraded" from W2K to NT4 or from NT4 to W2k?

I have never seen this problem under NT4:

The problem is definitely in (or at least trigger by) the fetchmail

I have observed this problem on different W2K machines (one SP1, one SP2)
connecting to different mail servers (one POP3, one IMAP).  procmail,
mutt, piping, etc. has nothing to due with this issue.

Shame on me for sitting on this patch for so long...
