Thanks Derek, after thinking about it for a bit I think I sort of came
to the same conclusions as you regarding the delays one can see.  Pity!

No, not a maildir in sight on my system, they're all mbox.

I'll do some more tracing and see if I can see mutt working hard in
any of the more obvious places.  Maybe if I hit keys as fast as I can
so that the waiting for character read() doesn't see any delay I might
be able to see where the time goes.
