[CentOS] Logwatch for postfix

On CentOS5 with the latest updates applied, the logwatch filter for 
postfix returns way too many lines from the log. I get an "unmatched 
entries" message and all messages that have gone through the system is 

Here is an example:

8F930A8092: to=<morten at foo.bar>, orig_to=<morten at localhost>, 
relay=local, delay=0.19, delays=0.06/0.01/0/0.12, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent 
(delivered to command: /usr/bin/procmail)

I have tried to look at the logwatch config and some google hits on 
similar problems but on debian. The hints there does not match what is 
relevant for CentOS.

Anyone seen this problem on CentOS or is it some specific problem to my 
configuration? I use fetchmail/postfix/dovecot/procmail locally on the 
server to consolidate mail. Could be that it tries to filter on some 
hostname/domain name?

And if it turns out that there is a God, I don't believe that he is evil.
The worst that can be said is that he's an underachiever.
