Description Chris Adams 2017-01-29 03:15:43 UTC
The patch mutt-1.5.20-cmdline_tls_segfault.patch causes mutt to mess up colors in the index when I have "arrow_cursor" set.  Instead of just the arrow at the left being highlighted, the whole line gets highlighted, and when I move up and down in the index, the arrow leaves white blanks behind in some spots.

I tried to look at the relevant bug, but it is private (BZ 1083524).

Without being able to see the bug, I'm not sure how curses and TLS combine to cause a problem (or how curses even is involved in sending a message from the command line).  I'm guessing that the problem is related to attrset()?  Does that exist in both curses and something else?

I have little experience programming with curses, but reading docs, it doesn't sound like attrset() and bkgdset() have quite the same semantics; for example, attrset() overrides existing attributes, while bkgdset() does not.

could you give me the version-release number of the package you use please?

Comment 3 Chris Adams 2017-02-03 14:21:24 UTC
I have this problem with mutt-1.5.20-7.20091214hg736b6a.el6.  I rebuilt the RPM excluding just the referenced patch, and that fixes the arrow_cursor problem for me.

Chris, do you have an idea whether the same issue is seen on RHEL 7?

Comment 6 Matej Mužila 2017-04-10 12:18:32 UTC
Hi Honza,

the issue is not present on RHEL 7.

OK, thanks, then I'd say let's close it.
