The fix is very non-intrusive and cheap (just an extra lstat). See
attached patch. Run tested.

A similiar patch has already been applied to CVS unfortunately it
didn't get into the 4.6.1 release:

You might want to check the CVS version of MC - it contains many
bugfixes and other changes.


If I understand it correctly, 4.6.1 os approx. two years old.
Are there plans to do another point release anytime soon?

I am not in position to answer that question.
