I think I'm seeing the same problem. I see it primarily in Mutt's index
screen where the message being pointed to, at least the message my
speech suggests is currently selected, is incorrect, usually off by +1.
As a result, I have inadvertently deleted meaningful mail, and
inadvertently kept obvious spam. Very annoying.

Sometimes a Ctrl-l helps. I've even tried quitting out of the mutt
session and restarting mutt.

But, there should be a better solution. So, I believe there is a bug
