mc sets process group differently from shell; forgets to close fd# 3

Hi mc people,

If you compile and run the following program
under shell and under mc...

#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/stat.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
int main(int argc, char **argv)
        int i, numfd = open("/dev/null", O_RDONLY);

        printf("pid=%d\n", getpid());
        printf("ppid=%d\n", getppid());
        printf("tty_pgrp=%d\n", (int)tcgetpgrp(0));
        printf("task_pgrp=%d\n", (int)getpgrp());
        for (i = 0; i < numfd; i++) {
                printf("fd# %d: '%s'\n", i, ttyname(i));
        return 0;

you will see the following:

bash-3.2# ./z
tty_pgrp=8183    <========== child is in its own process group
task_pgrp=8183   <==========
fd# 0: '/dev/pts/4'
fd# 1: '/dev/pts/4'
fd# 2: '/dev/pts/4'

bash-3.2# echo $$ ; exec mc

# ./z
tty_pgrp=8181    <========== child is in mc's process group
task_pgrp=8181   <========== child is in mc's process group
fd# 0: '/dev/pts/4'
fd# 1: '/dev/pts/4'
fd# 2: '/dev/pts/4'
fd# 3: '/dev/tty'  <=== ??!

Note that there are two differences, one minor and one pretty big.

Small one: child process is not given its own porcess group when run
under mc, while under sh it is. It means that if child will create its
own process group by itself and then die, under shell it works but
under mc mc will auto-background itself on child's death,
because tty's pgrp will not match mc's. Nasty.

Big one (actually, I think it's a bug): stray fd# opened
to controlling terminal.

mc version 4.6.0, compiled without subshell support.
