This is a dns resolution error... mc starts, when all timeouts are

There are 3 ways for fixing that:
1) you can delete your default gateway (the dns fails without timeout)
2) check /etc/resolv.conf + default route (the dns fails without timeout)
3) setup a correct /etc/hosts file with the name of the machine (the
   libc resolver resolves the name without any network related things)

Option 3) solved the problem.

Maybe some developer of mc can fix the thing, by avoiding the
unnecessary dns lookup ;)

Or if DNS lookup is really necessary having a short timeout, let's
say, 5 seconds?

The timeout is 5 seconds, but it seems, there are 4 of them... which
makes the starting of mc on such systems at least 20 seconds long :(
