Please always report the version of software for which you report the
problem.  Don't assume that everybody knows what version of MC is included
with RH 7.2 or with the unspecified version of GNOME you are running.

Use "mc -V" - it will display the version and other useful information.  
Please consider upgrading to the latest stable version 4.5.55 or you would
waste your time reporting bugs that were fixed long ago.

Also please try to explain how to reproduce the problem step-by-step.  
Don't worry if it doesn't cover all problems you see, but if nobody can
reproduce your problem then nobody will be able to fix it.

I don't understand about F3 - it works for me.  Shift-Arrows don't work in
anything but Linux console because there are no standard sequences for
those key combinations, and "learning" those sequences is not implemented.  
Linux console allows direct access to the keyboard state, that's why it

You can recompile mc and give "--with-tm-x-support" argument to
"configure".  This would enable direct keyboard access under X and you can
make Shift-Arrows work under X if you teach MC additional escape sequences
(it's non-trivial, so ask in the list if you come to this point).  This
would also make MC depend on X11 libraries - you won't be able to run MC
without them.  This hack is by no means finished and it seems that its
author lost interest to doing it the right way long ago.
