yes - the message appears and vanishes quickly again,
and maybe i had not noticed it before.  however, the
duration of the message has increased enough for me
to take notice.. over and over again.  and i wonder:
does mutt actually waste some time sorting the index
*every* time when i switch from message to message?
that would seem like a bug, wouldnt it?
but if it is a feature that cannot be turned off
then why does it issue that message at all?
