OK. Now the command makes sense. What I'm unclear about is why I would
need to change anything where mutt is concerned since just running
screen under your terminfo entry everything works fine. It's mainly
weechat-curses crashing that's a problem. As mentioned before, it's the
weechat developers that might help me with this if they're kind enough
to take a look. After all it's not really their problem either since
they could always say that the fault lies with the terminfo entry.
