procmail - multiple pipes and perl scrtipts

I am trying to process mail through two perl scripts by calling them in a procmail recipe. The first script reads in the mail and does some editing, then the second script outputs the result to a file specified in the script. So my recipe is set up like this:

:0w
* ^Subject:*.Report.*
|/usr/local/bin/perl $HOME/script1.pl | $HOME/script2.pl

I know both scripts run correctly. I have tried using a test mbox file via command line (i.e. script1.pl testfile | script2.pl) before trying it out with procmail, and it runs without a hitch. Any guesses why this doesn't work?

You have to serialize them in different rules :

:0fw
* ^Subject:*.Report.*
|/usr/local/bin/perl $HOME/script1.pl

:0w
|/usr/local/bin/perl $HOME/script2.pl

Check the doc for the proper flags, but I'm pretty sure this should work.
