Not only that, but you also can do it on patched rxvt with so called rxvt

Not only does it work, but when I broke it, the bug was reported within 
days, not years :-)

It works by capturing parts of the screen using OS-specific API.  mc
cannot do it in plain xterm or rxvt, because it can only switch the whole
buffer, and there is no way to read from it.

This is a very nice feature.  I don't use it because I mostly use
unpatched rxvt or konsole.  I hope that some day mc will have its own 
internal terminal, then this feature will be available on all terminals.

If I find the patch for rxvt, I'll put it here:
