Sorry, I had looked at the bug list, but didn't notice that one was
the bug Jean-Fran├žois was talking about.

The next step is to see whether the bug occurs in upstream mailutils.
<http://mailutils.org/download.html>

If so, report a bug there
<http://mailutils.org/manual/html_section/Reporting-Bugs.html#SEC252>,
then record in Launchpad that you've done it.
<https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mailutils/+bug/1222181/+choose-affected-product>

If not, then it's a bug specific to the Ubuntu packaging. The next
step might be to see if it also occurs in Debian mailutils.
