Mew is a mail reader for Emacs ( While testing
native compilation with FreeBSD amd64, I faced the problem that Mew
doesn't work correctly if .el files of Mew are native compiled.

I reported the problem to mailing list of Mew and recieved a reply
that Debian also faces it and works it around by setting
'no-native-compile' variable to 't' as file-local variable binding.
So it seems the problem is caused by native compilation itself and
isn't specific to some OS.

Mew is large package which consists of 65 .el files. So it is
difficult to narrow down the problem. To reproduce the problem you
need to install Mew and make minimal configration according the manual
of Mew (

Assuming that you completed the installation and configuration of Mew,
There are 2 cases that can be certainly reproduced.

[Case 1]

A. Steps to reproduce the problem

1. Start mew with 'M-x mew'.
2. Depending on the personal configuration, it changes which folder is
   visited just after the startup. Typically you see '+inbox'
   folder. If so you can skip this step. Otherwise switch to '+inbox'
   by typing "g", "+inbox" and return key.
3. At the '+inbox' folder, type 's' and return key.
   (Depending on the configuration you may need to type password.)

B. Expected behavior

Newly arrived message are displayed in "Mew: +inbox" buffer.
(If new message isn't arrived there is no change in "Mew: +inbox"

C. What really happens

Following error message is displayed in the echo area.

"error in process sentinel: Invalid function: mew-filter"

[Case 2]

A. Steps to reproduce the problem

1. Start mew with 'M-x mew'.
2. Type "w". Then buffer to compose new message is displayed.
3. Fill out To:, Subject:, message body, etc.
4. Type C-c C-m.

B. Expected behavior

Message such as following is displayed in the echo area.

"+draft/1 has been queued to +queue/1 (from Draft mode)"

And switch back to the folder before the step 2.

C. What really happens

"nil" is displayed in the echo area and don't switch back to the folder
before the step 2.
