so.. is anyone using neomutt here for reading newsgroups?
i have tried it again yesterday - and the update of the
index is both terribly laggy and completely bonkers. o_O

i start off with "neomutt -G" and it sure reads my ~/.newsrc
one of the newsgroups is comp.mail.mutt, of course.
(is there a comp.mail.neomutt yet? just wondering).
i enter the group and sure enough, there are some messages.

the messages flying by are too fast to catch.
wasn't there some idea about a logging window?
it would be great for catching some messages..

at first the index layout looks quite okay..
but when i go over the index with up/down
then suddenly a LOT of the index lines get
broken/lost and some seem to "leak" color.

unfortunately, a CTRL-L to update the screen
yields exactly the same broken layout. :-(

why is happening at all?  shouldnt the display
of the index be the same as with mail folders?
and why is this so slow?  is neomutt talking
to the news server in between updates?
(i should probably set a debug level.. okay.)

while i am reading, i have taken some screenshots.
but before i continue on this path, maybe someone of you
has already taken a look at this and solved some
of the problems with some nifty option values?

all ints welcome :)
