When I invoke "Show directory sizes" from Command menu, the scanning cannot
be interrupted. Ctrl-C, Ctrl-break, esc - notgnih work.

This can be especially annoying if you do it in root directory and you have
mounted some slow network drive, large archive with millions of files in
thousands of directories or anything else that will take ages (hours? days?)
to scan. Ultimately, I'll have to switch to another terminal and kill mc.

I think the scanning should be interruptible.

Also, it might be nice to show some sort of progress window, telling which
directory is scanned (a bit similar of the progress window showing the file
which is now deleted when you delete some large directory structure)
