UTF-8 locales and display corruption

If I should set my LANG environment variable to "en_US.UTF-8", many
terminal applications which link to and use ncurses begin to have
various degrees of display corruption. Does anyone know how to fix this,
or what the cause is?

The applications I have noticed it the most in are mutt (including
mutt-devel) and ncmpc, both from ports, and I am running FreeBSD-STABLE
as of just a couple of days ago.
