That's fine. Thanks for the report.

We made some improvements to the way NeoMutt handled subjects with
multiple encoded sections. If the sender gave us whitespace, then we

We took a bit of a gamble that very few people would have heard of the
option, let alone set it. You win :-)
I've put back the variable -- it's non-functional -- for the sake of
config compatibility. There'll be a new release in about a week.
In the future (not soon), we will issue deprecation warnings for
obsolete options such as this and eventually retire them.
