00-74, 00-78 patches were helpful for me as well, thanks Egmont. They
are now applied in devel FC.

The problem is that Vladimir and me use different versions of mc. My
approach is to be more in sync with upstream so that there's a more
recent CVS snapshot in Fedora for now because of a very rare release
period of mc. This helps me to do only minimal changes when I want to
send a patch to upstream. SuSE uses the stable mc-4.6.1, AFAIK.

+1 for storing useful patches in contrib. It would be quite hard to keep
them in sync with devel mc though.
