@visibilityspots, sure, no problem. If there are any other architectures this package successfully builds on just comment here.

would it be possible to add the armv6h architecture by default? I'm installing on a pi and with every update need to adopt the PKGBUILD file manually..

@tsuflux, @lahwaacz
Fixed in git

Due to a hard-coded Curses constant in Mutt, Sidebar lied about its size.
During that lie, someone else told Sidebar to refresh itself.
Sidebar got confused and promptly vanished!

Thanks for investigating.

> set mail_check = 0

Whoa! *Now* I can reproduce it. I shall fix it tonight.

It seems to have been an issue with my config. After some time, I've been able to isolate the option responsible for this - it's "set mail_check = 0". It seems that the sidebar has a problem with this.

Many thanks for your help, flatcap.

I've compiled the exact code you're using with all the same options, but I can't reproduce the problem.
I checked the code and I cannot see what's causing this (that has been introduced in the last update).
But that doesn't help you.


Please can you try the following and test after each one:

1) Rebuild the code from scratch.
Just in case a stray cosmic ray broke the build.

2) Create a config file "test.rc" with only the lines below (plus your mailboxes commands).
Then run: "./mutt -n -F test.rc"

set sidebar_visible = yes
set sidebar_width = 24
bind index,pager \CP sidebar-prev
bind index,pager \CN sidebar-next
bind index,pager \CO sidebar-open

3) If 2) works correctly, please try: "./mutt -F test.rc"
Use the system config in /etc

4) If 2) works correctly, please try: "./mutt -n"
Use only YOUR config

Also, opening a message has similar effect to sidebar-open, i.e. the sidebar disappears afterwards. When the sidebar is shown and I delete a message, it is highlighted in red and the corresponding row is shifted to the left side, thus overwriting part of the sidebar. Something is very wrong here, have you figured out anything @flatcap? Let me know where I can help.

OK, thanks.
flatcap goes away to think...

lahwaacz commented on 2016-06-22 16:13

It's like "not there".

flatcap commented on 2016-06-22 15:58

Hmmm... Not much code changed between NeoMutt 2016-05-30 and 2016-06-11.
When you say "disappears", is it either:
"Not there" -- Index panel is flush to the left-hand side of the screen
"Not painted" -- No sidebar, but there is a big gap on the left
