Package: neomutt
Version: 20171215+dfsg.1-1
Severity: normal

When running neomutt and specifying the package muttrc explicitly, neomutt
complains about errors

   $ neomutt -F /etc/neomuttrc
   source: errors in /etc/neomuttrc

Running the above under "script" reveals further information that was not
visible when running it normally

   Error in /etc/neomuttrc, line 38: mixmaster: unknown variable
   Error in /etc/neomuttrc, line 41: ssl_ca_certificates_file: unknown variable

These lines occur before "source: errors in /etc/neomuttrc" so I think neomutt
is clearing the screen between reporting them and writing the "source:..." line.

   1) neomutt should be clearer in reporting these errors
   2) /etc/neomuttrc should not contain things that neomutt does not understand
