This sounds like maybe you've run into bug 25043:

slocal doesn't cope with the case where (a) you've compiled
nmh with dot-locking and (b) /var/mail isn't writeable by users.

Assuming this is the case then there are two possible

(1) if you're on Linux, install liblockfile and build nmh to use it
(2) don't use slocal to deliver mail to the system mbox file
