I think the best place for these questions is the debian mailing list,
usually they apply their patches to the upstream source code making
the program slightly different from the original one.

Anyway, even if I don't suppose to use mutt (nothing is better than
emacs and gnus) I will try to help you.

In the Martin Krafft's script that I found here:

there are two lines:
run x-terminal-emulator -e mutt${mutt_args:+ $mutt_args} -i $TMPFILE

run exec x-terminal-emulator -e mutt${mutt_args:+ $mutt_args}

The first one is executed when a body content is specified for the new
email in the $TMPFILE file; instead the second command is executed if
a body is not present.

Can you try to run the second one and see if it raises a new terminal
window and execute mutt inside it?
