the subshell's way of chdir'ing

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.
