I missed the beginning of this thread. I had mutt-devel until
about a week ago, when, after some update, it became extremely
slow. For example, using just /var/mail it would take 10 seconds
or more to move from one message to another in index. The same
delay for opening messages in pager. The size of messages was
same as before, mostly 2-3 lines with occasional attachment.
Anyway, I rolled back to mutt-220.127.116.11_5, which works fine.
This has probably nothing to do with the Subject, just
thought perhaps somebody else seen a significant slow down
after the update?
Sorry if this has nothin
