mutt/Cygwin locks on some characters?

I haven't seen this problem before.  I'm using all the latest Current
Cygwin packages under XP Professional.

I have an email to which I simply wish to reply.  When I try "r" in mutt,
mutt stalls/locks up when it tries to include the original email, and I
have to kill the process.  When I save the email to a file, I find that
the problem is imply that the person's name has an accent, e.g.
xxxé yyyy
If I edit this to
xxxe yyyy
then the return in mutt (using mutt -f file, etc.) works just fine.

Now, the same email under FreeBSD, using Mutt, on another
machine, works just fine with the original email.

Furthermode, under Cygwin, when I try
mutt -V
under tcsh, the printout immediately gets cleared?  (I do not have this
problem with other tools, e.g., `gcc -V`.)  Under bash I do not have
this clearing problem, but a reply under mutt still fails.

mutt drops a small mutt.exe.stackdump file:

In fact, I cannot even send this email from Cygwin.  I had to upload it
to my FreeBSD machine to send it.
