Is this what you get *inside* screen, too?


Then on one hand I don't understand why mc doesn't give you 256
colors; on the other hand I guess your top line (the menu bar) is not
properly painted.  Screen requires that inside it TERM is set to
screen (or some variant, e.g. screen-256color).

Try putting this in your .screenrc:
term screen-256color

I did so, but it makes no difference.

However, I just noticed that I only get the error message if I start mc
via a screen hotkey, not if I start mc via the shell command line. I have
the following stanza in the .screenrc

  bind C screen -t 'mc'  mc -x
so I cannot use a 256 color skin if I use this hotkey. If I
start mc via the shell command line, I can use the skin but
terminal attributes such a bold for directories are lost.
