FYI, if you debug an app in gdb, it will open a new console window in
which the app itself would run, so you won't be debugging and running the
app in the same window.  Simply set the breakpoint in the function that
checks the timestamps, use mutt normally, and when it stops at the
breakpoint, step through the code (you'll still need a debug version of
mutt, though).
