How to prevent *.tar.gz copy to /tmp in MC

Hi everybody !

First of all I'd like to apologize for posting this probably trivial question to your mailing list. I simply didn't get through to one more narrowed down to the issue.

Having tried in vain to cope with an MC behavior that I had not been used before changing from SuSE-Linux 6.1 to Debian 2.2r2. Since that change-over I've noticed that MC writes a temporary mirror image of any *.gz file that is marked in file manager to /tmp. Such files eventually clog my tmp-directory unless I erase them from there, because MC does _not_ do that automatically upon termination (as I would have expected).
This phenomenon does not occur with the SuSE setup.

Another - yet not so important - matter concerns the fact that MC does not start in color mode unless parameter -c is added at command line. Is there a specific entry I could make in /etc/mc/mc.ini that would automate that?
This is my present (dafault) entry concerning colors.

I'd highly appreciate any help.
