A fix for the F3 /var/log bug...

An attempted practical fix for a longstanding bug and/or nuisance. Earlier I posted it to a Debian buglist, but the Debian maintainer is presently silent, so...

In 'mc', hitting F3 or 'Enter' doesn't work right for files in /var/log. There was a thread about this on 'mc-devel' in June 2001:

	Viewer config (was: TODO list for the next version)

...their prognosis was pessimistic.

The fix is described (with a patch for '/etc/mc/mc.ext') here:

	Debian Bug report logs - #179350
	mc hangs viewing a .gz file

(It's about the fourth message down.)

Please CC: replies (if any) to agcosta gmx net, as I don't subscribe to 'mc-devel'.
