There is something wrong with your setup, and the usual is a corrupted
config file somewhere in ~/.pan2 (BTW, which version of pan?).

I would try renaming ~/.pan2 to move it out of the way and then let
pan start fresh with a new config directory.  If you have lots of
valuable settings in your present .pan2 directory you can try copying
the old files one at a time to your new .pan2 directory until you hit
the corrupt one.  Then maybe you can deduce what's corrupted and let
us know.
