Just to mention a different experience and expected behaviour on earlier
versions — I’m using ‘mbox_type=Maildir’ and ‘mask="."’ and I *cannot*
confirm the described issue for:
- NeoMutt 20170428 (1.8.2)
- NeoMutt 20170602 (1.8.3)
Both starts in current working directory (on new mail) or in the current
mailbox (on a reply) when hitting ‘a’ for the first time. After changing
directory (/tmp in my case) and attaching ‘/tmp/file1’ NeoMutt starts in
/tmp again for browsing the next attachment.
Changing directories with ‘change-dir’ or cursor keys and ‘select-entry’
on ‘../’ item to navigate to the target location makes no difference and
even when I cancel navigation by ‘exit’ the browser menu NeoMutt reminds
that location (where exiting).

There are a lot of commits between NeoMutt 20170602 (1.8.3) and
NeoMutt/20170714 (1.8.3) (extracted from Andrew’s User-Agent string).
Maybe I’ll try it when I can confirm the issue on my next update but to
be honest I’m not in a hurry currently due to a lack of some spare time.
