Oh. Actually I thought procmail was not suppose to deliver when given -v
       -v   Procmail  will  print its version number, display its compile time
            configuration and exit.
(from the man page)

Can you be a bit more specific? Is anything added to the procmail log?
You could also add VERBOSE=on on the command line for more
info. recommends
      LOGFILE     = $PMSRC/pm.log
      LOGABSTRACT = "all"
      VERBOSE     = "on"
in the .procmailrc.

And you're sure you are running the correct procmail, i.e. there is no
other procmail in your path before the one you are expecting to run?
$ type -a procmail
procmail is /usr/bin/procmail
procmail is /bin/procmail
