Hi, Nate!

Sorry for inconvenience.

I managed to grab the CVS but was unable to build it - it complained,
something like:

autoheader:  shell error sourcing /tmp/aXXXX/

That's actually almost exactly what I get.  Here's the full output, along
with autoheader:

natedac daconcepts ~/mc$ ./
autoheader: error: shell error while sourcing /tmp/ah9323/
natedac daconcepts ~/mc$ autoheader --version
autoheader (GNU Autoconf) 2.50

Autoconf is 2.50.

I no longer need to compile it, since I found out what the problem was.

This patch exists (if I understand your problem correctly), but I haven't
applied it yet.  You can try "mc -x" in the meantime.

In version 4.5.55 (the one supplied with Slackware), the -x switch doesn't
seem to do anything.

Again, more info could be useful.

To be more exact, if I click on an item, such as a menu entry at the top,
or a filename in either panel, nothing happens.  Double-clicking selects a
word, click and drag selects a region.  It's as if I'm hjolding down the
Shift key to do a normal text selection.

In other words, I can't really use the mouse for anything but cut and
paste, at least not in ATerm.  Programs like PINE and Links seem to have
no mouse troubles in A-Term, though.

If I use X-Term, MC behaves as advertised.

It was broken.  It's fixed now, but it will be removed soon.  Command line
options are not the right way to permanently fix MC behavior on certain

I agree. :)
