Are you using the latest snapshot?  This started happening after
updating today, between the snapshots that advertise MP kernel build
number #626 and #627 on amd64.

The _only_ thing related to the "stdin" account in my ~/.fdm.conf is a
single line saying

account "stdin" disabled stdin

Mail is otherwise filtered and sorted _exactly_ like the messages that I
fetch from remote IMAPS accounts in the same configuration.

The smtpd configuration for local-to-local delivery looks like

action "local" mbox alias <aliases>
match from local for local action "local"

I did not send this to the bugs list because I wasn't sure it was a base
system bug, a bug in fdm, or the intended behaviour after the various
recent updates to smtpd, or just something that I'm doing wrong.  If it
is indeed a bug, then I'll write a proper report to the bugs list.
