I got an error very similar to this. possibly that error, though not only for
mutt. Basically it was for any X program pretty much.

Back when I had an X installation I had compiled myself (4.0.2) on potato. I
had compiled form the instructions with the X source, and got that error with
all programs, it was not till I read the DRI compile howto page a few months
later and saw this instruction

in http://dri.sourceforge.net/doc/DRIcompile.html
9.3 Update Locale Information 

To update your X locale information do the following: 

             cd ~/DRI-CVS/build/xc/nls
             ../config/util/xmkmf -a
             make install

once I did that it all worked fine and I have not seen the message since.
