I have a problem connecting to an imaps server with mutt. Whenever I try to connect it segfaults.
This happens since mutt 1.5.20. Older versions work without any problem.
Some debug information is attached. Any Ideas?

does emerge -avNDu mutt help? typically segfaults indicate either bad memory, a bad build, an error in the code (can't rule this out), or a mismatched dependency.

thx, but nope, this doesn't help.

I tried it now also with some different imaps server which is working without any problem.

So it seems to be a problem that occurs while communicating with the domino mail server here at work. Maybe some incompatibility or whatever. Maybe even a bug in the mail server. Anyway mutt should not segfault so there is definitely some problem with mutt as well.

Try disabling/clearing the header cache, I've seen that cause segfaults before.

I already tried to disable the header cache. Also most of the other options that are not needed in the config. It doesn't help.

The last try was on an recent openSuSE with the same result. Probably I need to fill a but report for the mutt people as this seems to be some problem with mutt and certain mail servers. At least it is not gentoo specific and works with some other servers.

thx anyway.
