this is not a but a bug.
The problem is that chinese caracteres use 2 octets, and mutt autowrap
lines. The problem occurs when a chinese charatere lets say XY (X and Y
are 2 8bit-ASCII character) is on the edge. if your terminal is not
large enough to display the character you will see X and Y on the
following line. So that the original character can't be displayed
