Subject: Mutt *very* slow reading some mails
Mutt stops responding to me when trying to open certain (spam)
messages. I've attached a gzipped example. strace shows large numbers
of mremap() calls going on, which suggests maybe lots of memory
allocations. The mail has a *very* long line in the Bcc: header, which
I'm guessing may be the cause.
Of course, I don't want to actually read this mail, but mutt should be
better behaved. After waiting a couple of minutes, I killed the mutt
process and had a look at this mail using less instead.
