       None.  Mutts have fleas, not bugs.

       Suspend/resume while editing a file with an external  editor  does  not
       work  under  SunOS 4.x if you use the curses lib in /usr/5lib.  It does
       work with the S-Lang library, however.

       Resizing the screen while using an external pager  causes  Mutt	to  go
       haywire on some systems.

       suspend/resume does not work under Ultrix.

       The help line for the index menu is not updated if you change the bind
       ings for one of the functions listed while Mutt is running.

       For a more up-to-date list of bugs, errm, fleas, please visit the  mutt
       projects  bug tracking system under http://bugs.guug.de/.  To report a
       bug, please use the flea(1) program.
