Description of problem:
When using mutt, the screen becomes corrupt almost instantaneously.
It looks as if the clear-to-end-of-line command is being ignored.
This is most visible with the half-page scroll operations; full-page
scroll operations appear to clear the entire screen first, and so do
not show the corruption.

Steps to Reproduce:
Here I've got one gnome-terminal and one xterm open. $TERM is set
to xterm in both. I've opened a random message that's long enough
to scroll. I've scrolled down a half-page (d), refreshed the screen
(^L), then scrolled up a half-page (u) and pasted the results.
Due to the wrapping that happens in the web form boxes, I'll have
to attach the output. I'll also attach the mail message used for

mbox with test mail message
