[neomutt-users] "mutt -e <command>" does not do as documented

I'm using NeoMutt 20170428 (1.8.2).

The documentation for -e is:

    Specify a configuration command to be run after processing of
initialization files.

But contrary to said phrase, I find the command is not executed after
(maybe it is executed before?). Here is an example.

In your .muttrc, put the following:

push <first-entry>

Then run the following command:

mutt -e "push <last-entry>"

I find that the first entry is selected.

Does others reproduce and think this is a bug or documentation failure?

Kind regards,
