Go back and read what James said he's using:

Now I have the same, and I also have, as I've

fetchmail, so that means it just handles over to the local mail transfer
agent, be it postfix, sendmail, qmail, whatever. And that ends

Yes, and you're missing my point.
I've been saying that James is mixing mbox and maildir and that' why his
Thunderbird isn't seeing anything.
I'm saying that *my* system is consistent about the INBOX being maildir:
I have it set that way in the dovecot inbox namespace and I have it that
way in my .procmailrc because I'm not using sendmail/postfix.
What you're saying is that James has a maildir set to ~/Mail/INBOX in
his namespace inbox and a uses the default mbox in /var/spool because he
has lets his .procmail default into using sendmail/postfix deal with it.
Unless he wants to make his dot-procmailrc work like mine, perhaps his
best tactic is to delete *all* customization from the dovecot config,
not just the customization of the namespace but remove all mail_location
and remove local.conf and let dovecot do its smart thing.
