Check out this bug:
Short desc: When the subshell is active and you change dir in the
panels in MC, MC must make the subshell change dir too. This is
done by something like « cd "`echo '\0..\0..'`"» where \0..\0..
is a bunch of octal numbers. The problem is that some shells
require 'echo -e' instead of 'echo'.
Would it not be possible to fix this by doing
cd "`cat some-temp-file-containing-new-working-dir`"
instead? Slower but more portable I think.
