Oops. Just tried it and neither aterm (and rxvt) or gnome-terminal
seem to work with the font above, they all render the lines as blocks.
I also tried setting the TERM envvar to various values to no avail.
Any terminal experts on this list?

I guess a workaround is to ``set ascii_chars=yes'' in .muttrc, but
then the arrows don't look as nice :(
