You will notice that If you have your $TERM set to something like
screen(.*) then mouse actions do not work, this goes not only for mc, but
for any other app (in my experience). However, if you set it to
xterm(.*), then it works.

I do not know if the reason for this is in screen, the terminal or the
applications, but it is a little annoying.

MC recognizes only a couple of terminals as capable of xterm mouse reporting. It reads the value of the TERM variable and compares
it a against a fixed list of strings - i.e. xterm, Eterm, etc.
An alternative approach would be to to make this list user
configurable as suggested here:
