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.
