  Just by a change, does your   $MAILVAR/db/localnames  database contain
  the "localhost"  name ?

  If not, then it is because "localhost" isn't recognized as locally served
  domain, with which the local user routing will then happen thru the
  aliases.cf  file.  Otherwise that script isn't called at all.

  Possibly.  But send it only to me, not to the entire list.
