P.S.: Re: mutt/Cygwin locks on some characters?

mutt -v gives the info below.  Note
On my most current Cygwin, I see a soft link for sendmail
sendmail -> /usr/sbin/ssmtp

Note that ssmtp is the oldest executable under /usr/sbin:
7408 Apr 12  2001 ssmtp.exe
All other excutables here have dates 2002 or 2003.
Perhaps ssmtp needs to be updated?

I managed to capture an error message relating to the mutt failure below:

assertion "errno == E2BIG || (BUGGY_ICONV && (errno == EILSEQ || errno == ENOENT))" failed: file "../mutt-1.4-1/sendlib.c", line 743


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.


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