On my system, I get this (for user account "spamtrap"):
uid=541(spamtrap) gid=541(spamtrap) groups=541(spamtrap)
Security is not my strongest point, so someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't your "euid=0(root)" mean that the process is running with root privs? The fact that any user can get a procmail process to write to a non-world-writable file on your system seems to confirm this.
Obviously, if a non-root user can run commands as root by placing them in his .procmailrc, this is a Bad Thing.
