Hello, Everyone :)
I've had exactly the same problem.  I've discovered that if I will
uninstall whatever version of MC that I'm trying and reinstall the
version that ships with Red Hat 8, then the problem goes away.  But if
I reinstall any version newer than the one that ships with Red Hat 8,
then the problem the Myron describes returns. When I installed Red Hat
8, I installed every package, so if there's a package on the Red Hat 8
cd's (I bought an official boxed set at CompUSA), then it's installed
on my system.  The only updates I have installed are the official Red
Hat 8 updates. I'll be looking forward to the solution to this :)

I initially tried to compile from source and got errors--perhaps this has 
something to do with the problems--i.e. somehow the rpm mamaged to by-
pass the compilation problem, with the result that on some systems mc runs 

P.S. Sorry if my original post turned up 3x--something screwy with Pegasus 
and the address.
