Description Chris Xe 2015-09-07 07:22:33 UTC
Both the lastest stable (1.5.23-r8) and masked (1.5.24-r1) mail-client/mutt will hang after connecting to an imap server with an encrypted connection. This only happens for the 1.5.24 version if "gnutls" USE flag is set (i.e. I temporarily fixed mine by going with the latest version with "-gnutls"). I'd say this is related to this bug:
I would suggest that Gentoo just remove the gnutls flag until its properly fixed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.package.use = mail-client/mutt imap mbox gpg ssl smime smtp gnutls
2.emerge mutt
3.muttrc = set spoolfile='imaps://'
Actual Results:  
Hangs while fetching messages. Says something like "0/137" and never moves. Can't Ctrl-C to terminate. The number of remote messages to process is correct so we know it's making a connection.

Expected Results:  
Downloads the messages.
