Please always specify the version of the software you are going to
improve.  Also the name of your operating system can be useful.

I could not reproduce this problem with CVS version of MC running on
Linux-2.4.7-ac10 with the files on reiserfs.  I have no time to test all
other combinations.  I don't have OS/2 to test.  If you want your reports
to be taken seriously please give more information.

I don't think that the viewer loads the whole file.  The Quick View uses
the same viewer code, and from what I see in the code it uses pages 8192
bytes each.

It's possible.  The code may already be there.  If it doesn't work report
it as a bug.  Describe what you are doing, what you get and what you
expect to get.

Why do you think that the manual (and the chapter in the help) aren't

The CVS version uses SHELL, which must be wrong - the menu is written for
Bourne shell.  But nobody has complained yet.
