and changing the qmail-start command line has no impact whatsoever on
vpopmail because it uses a .qmail file that has content, which overrides

You shouldn't need to look at the vpopmail sourcecode to understand

man qmail-start
man qmail-lspawn
man qmail-local
man dot-qmail

you could have ./jimbob's_rib_shack in defaultdelivery and it would have
no impact on vpopmail.

no, vdelivermail is called by qmail-local as instructed by the
.qmail-default file in the domain's home directory.

man qmail-local
man dot-qmail

Question for Eirik:

did you by chance recompile vpopmail recently?

You might also want to try ~vpopmail/bin/vmkpasswd domain for the domain
and see what happens.  Also!  You might want to check the perms on the
vpasswd file in the domain's home directory.
