How are you invoking procmail in your .fetchmailrc?  Are you following
the recommended usage as documented in the Cygwin fetchmail README?

    mda "/usr/bin/procmail -d %T"

FWIW, Cygwin fetchmail/procmail has properly processed well over 100K
emails since I cut over to this email processing solution in July 2001.
