Hm. You are right. It seems MC writes the file to an archive
when you exit the internal viewer. Not nice at all...!

This is either a bug in extfs or MC. This is what happens:
(/home/usel/ has permissions -r--r--r--.)

 "Enter" is pressed when cursor is over
   <extfs-module> list /home/usel/

 "F3" is pressed when cursor is over file bk.html in
   <extfs-module> copyout /home/usel/ bk.html /tmp/extfsQA8iFb

 "Q" is pressed to exit the viewer, now the file is copied back
 into the archive:
   <extfs-module> copyin /home/usel/ bk.html /tmp/extfsQA8iFb

This means that every time you enter a zip archive an view
files in it, the archive is modified! This should also be true
for all other archives supported via extfs.
