Thanks.  Specifying smtp_pass results in the same behaviour for me.
(In addition, the docs suggest that not specifying a password should
result in it being prompted on first send.)

    3.348. smtp_pass

    Type: string
    Default: (empty)

    Specifies the password for your SMTP account. If unset, Mutt will
    prompt you
    for your password when you first send mail via SMTP. See $smtp_url
    to configure
    mutt to send mail via SMTP.

    Warning: you should only use this option when you are on a fairly secure
    machine, because the superuser can read your muttrc even if you are
    the only
    one who can read the file.
