I managed simpler: <quote>

emacs -q --no-site-file
M-x rmail

</quote> and reproduced the error !
So I'll hazard a guess that your movemail variant is emacs and my
problem is actually incompatibility with the mailutils one.  Here's
the whole of my *Messages* buffer for that session: <quote>

("emacs" "-q" "--no-site-file")
For information about the GNU Project and its goals, type C-h C-p.
Loading rmail...done
(New file)
Counting messages...done
movemail: /usr/lib/emacs/22.1/i486-linux-gnu/movemail: invalid option -- -
(No new mail has arrived)
