        Platform Version: All



This bug report was originally submitted to the developers mailing list:

Using MC 4.6.0
GNU Midnight Commander 4.6.0
Virtual File System: tarfs, extfs, cpiofs, ftpfs, fish, smbfs
With builtin Editor
Using system-installed S-Lang library with terminfo database
With subshell support as default
With support for background operations
With mouse support on xterm and Linux console
With support for X11 events
With internationalization support
With multiple codepages support

When viewing two file lists, if user presses C-x i for info on
a panel's directory or file, the info pops up correctly in the
other panel. However, when the user closes the info screen, the
directory of the current panel is shown -- NOT the directory
which was being viewed before the info panel appeared.

Sorry if this is confusing. Let me illustrate:

Left            Right
\               \usr\bin

User is in left panel
Presses C-x i (or selects Info from the Right Panel menu)
Info panel appears in Right panel
User presses C-x i again to toggle info off
(or selects listing mode from Right Panel menu)
Right directory panel now shows \, not \usr\bin

IMO, after info is closed, whatever was in the panel should be restored.
