I cannot fix of anything that could affect that bug.  I'll have a look.

OK, I'll have a look, but I was testing mc on the QNX console yesterday
and didn't see anything wrong.

I'm sure I would have noticed it.  Are you using QNX 6.2.0 (Momentics)?

I don't understand anything.  What is "y"?

Anyway, when something is displayed incorrectly, it's usually sufficient to
reproduce just 1 problem.

If you want to solve this problem, translate the terminfo entry to termcap
using infocmp, use mc compiled with termcap and use binary search to find
the option responsible for the breakage.

setf and setb were incorrectly interpreted.  Unlike the ANSI standard
colors, they specify color in BGR (blue=1, green=2, red=4).  This
translation wasn't done in older version of S-Lang.

Look for BGR in S-Lang 1.4.8 sources.

Why do you want that?  Is there anything wrong with them?
