Hehe :) The data points are all very interesting, but there's
definitely a problem, even if some people aren't noticing it...
rebuild the mutt package, and when it's doing the configuration,
notice that it doesn't think you have a wchar.h.

And for those of you not seeing any crashes, I believe you need to be
running a fairly recent version of -current, and one of the following
needs to be true: pointers are larger than ints; or you have the
LC_CTYPE variable set to a multibyte locale. Try setting LC_CTYPE to
en_US.UTF-8 and see if you get a crash. On my -current/i386 1.6ZK
system, mutt doesn't crash if LC_CTYPE isn't set, but does when it's
set to en_US.UTF-8. On my -current/alpha 1.6ZH system, mutt crashes
regardless of LC_CTYPE.
