Hi Chris,

This should be enough. Just in case, let's examine the contents of
your mailutils.scm module. Near line 30 you will find the following

(let ((lib-path LIBPATH))

where LIBPATH is a literal string (e.g. on my box it is
"/usr/local/lib/"). Does it correspond to the directory where libmu_.*
files are kept?

> (mu-mailbox-open "/home/cjh/var/spool/mail") => #f
> (mu-mailbox-open "file:/home/cjh/var/spool/mail") => #f

Is "/home/cjh/var/spool/mail" a file or a directory? It seems
like a directory, in which case it surely will fail to open.

What arguments do you give to guimb?
