Sorry, this isn't true. The same problem occurs with status bars in Vim as in Mutt. I have also seen the same thing start happening with the extra partial space at the botton of the screen.

Have you tried xterm?  That's what I use and I have never seen this.

The problem doesn't seem to happen with xterm, although I've managed to get a big red bar all along the side and bottom of my xterm window in fullscreen (i.e. the area along the edge too small to fit a character in it). I can't readily reproduce this problem though.

It must be something wrong with the Gnome window manager.
