Mouse support bugs and a couple of feature requests

First, the bug:
1. Running mc inside screen at the Linux console prevents gpm mouse support 
from working.
2. Running mc inside screen inside Konsole (or Yakuake) prevents mouse support 
unless explicitly run with the -x option.
3. The -x option prevents gpm from working at the console.
These three problems make comfortable mouse use almost impossible.

As for the feature requests:
1. could you please add an option to start with MC hidden (equivalent to 
starting normally and then pressing Ctrl+o) so I can stick it at the end of 
my .bashrc comfortably?
2. How about a formatting construct that lets me do "mode:-3" to just display 
the last 3 mode bits in the column? The current "mode:3" is practically 
useless because it trims off the last 3, leaving only the suid/sgid/sticky 
value and the two bits used internally by the OS.

Thanks in advance and here's the output of mc -V
