I'll take another look at the mutt manual but I'm not
sure I understand why I should set TERMCAP to "mutt".

No, no, your not setting TERMCAP to mutt here, you're unsetting
TERMCAP before you run mutt (note the space between the = and the
string 'mutt').  This is the line that goes inside your screenrc.

How would I go about finding out if the ncurses lib is wide
character-enabled? Isn't that what 'w' means..? cf. the weechat
backtrace above.

Yes, so you don't have a problem there :-).
