       Hello Pavel, its about mc

Please write to the list if it's about MC.

    1) sometimes mc fails to change to _existing_ directories, and complains
    2) sometimes it just reflect that it has changed to the dir, by updating the
  panels, but dont actually do the dirchange, and when one tries to type in
  some command it tells what "cant exec command - shell is active"
  or smth like that. I suppose chdir call stalls of smth like that.
    3) while copying large amount of files (>4GB), the size progress
  bar everytimes == 0%

  I`m sorry, but these bugs are there already ~20 versions, or likely more...
 (and pretty much likely more)

    4) it _is_ the time to use madvise(VM_SEQ_READ) on large files.
  that i suppose _will_ drmatically increase large file transfer speed.
  actually i`d like to see tunable the value from which the file io will
  be madvised to be streaming...

  the algo is next: 1. mmap file 2. madvise the memregion 3. do the io

  hmm... thats all i can remeber for the moment...
    5) Search is b0rken:
        if you are grepping in the directory for "foo" you can fail, even
  if files containing "foo" exists. Even more if foo is expected to be 
  surrounded by spaces like that " foo ", and you will reflect this,
  entries will be found, while still failing on "foo".
    This bug i hate most, since i have to use grep to be sure.

Not enough details:

1) Which OS'es are affected?
2) Which operations are affected?
 Usual operation. All is described above.
