Find file dialog in mc-4.6.0-pre3


I've scanned a TODO list and found the item -
"Make find dialog more responsive" - inside
"After 4.6.1 on 4.6.x branch" section.

But I think the responsiveness of the dialog is unacceptable for the
4.6.0 release. I missed the moment when it became so bad, (may be 1-3
releases ago (?)). But I remember mc-4.5.55 responsiveness was _much_
better. In fact 'Find file' in mc-4.6.0-pre3 is unusable on large
(~100Mb) directory trees. I can't quickly stop it, I can't quickly
suspend it, and so on. The response time is about 40(!) seconds.

I've checked it on Linux console and xterm terminals.

mc was compiled with the following configure options:
--disable-dependency-tracking --disable-nls --enable-charset --with-x

$ mc -V
