Hi Daniel,

I see that you are using mutt. Are you using a UTF-8 locale and also get
the thread indicators to show correctly? Or are you using a UTF-8 locale
but have something like export


in your .bashrc

I use mutt in the system console and can't seem to strike the right 
combination. If I generate a UTF-8 locale I need to set
LC_CTYPE="en_NZ" which seems to defeat the purpose of generating UTF-8
in the first place.

Also "dpkg-reconfigure" shows rubbish unless LC_CTYPE is set similarly
for root.
