Mutt: No Mailbox error

Please install strace and run mutt under that, with a command
something like this:

	strace -o /tmp/log -ff   <your-normal-mutt-command-line>

Afterward, look in /tmp/log* to see what files mutt was trying to stat
or open.  Then, you can either install symlinks so it finds something
there, or else try to reconfigure so it looks in the right place.
