"mutt" uses ASCII graphics made from special characters to display relations
between messages in an mail thread. This feature works fine under NetBSD 1.6.2
but doesn't work under NetBSD-current. Recompiling "mutt" to use "ncurses"
instead of NetBSD's "curses" fixed the problem. For some strange reasion
it is enough to start a "ncurses" based "mutt" in a XTerm window once and
the "curses" based "mutt" binary will work in that window, too. So my
guess is that it is really a setup problem.
Start "mutt", enter a mail folder which is sorted by thread.
Building "mutt" with "MUTT_USE_NCURSES=YES" avoids the problem.
