Weird, indeed!, considering you should have started mutt like so:
chrisb@box:~$ LANG=C mutt

I still wonder why you run "consolechars -d" as that OVERRIDES any
changes you make.

Obviously, starting mutt in that way only affects mutt.

Try starting mutt without the .muttrc file and try the above again.

So mutt DOES display correctly when you run "consolechars -d"? 

There is something weird with your setup.
Have a look at http://lists.debian.org/debian-user/2008/01/msg00236.html
and http://lists.debian.org/debian-user/2008/01/msg00402.html

I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god
than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other
possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.
