I'm trying to fix a display issue when using mutt inside a screen session.
This issue came to my attention when the following posts hit my mailbox:

The accent in Mario's name (post 10723 in my mailbox) seems to cause havok with the
terminal emulation in mutt. I've experimented with the different terminal emulations
(xterm, ansi, screen, linux, xterm-color etc) and found that:
ansi = garbled screen.
xterm = displays layout correctly, however highlight bars (in the index screen
within mutt) only drawns a background colour when text is also drawn.
xterm-color = displayis an issue is shown when using the up/down arrows over
his posts. This corrupts the layout of the screen. usually a blank
line is displayed below Mario's name.
screen = same as xterm-color
linux = same as xterm-color
Does anyone know how I might be able to correct this? Is this an issue with screen or the
termcap or maybe even mutt?
