Are you perchance running clamav? version 99.3's first release about 2 
weeks back used up the available unix sockets, bricking the machine till 
a reboot, wash, rinse, repeat. A new 99.3 has fixed that, but until that 
filters thru the distro channels, you should shut clamav down. So I 
have, and have commented out, the calls to inspect incoming emails out 
of my .procmailrc.
