subshell bug?

I've encountered this behaviour 2 days ago for the first time.
When starting mc (from xterm/rxvt) it hangs for several (>10) seconds.

My reaserch always pointed to some obcsure subshell handling in mc. And
I just noticed:

 $ mc > scratch
   subshell.c: couldn't get terminal settings: Inappropriate ioctl for

IIRC the temporary workaround would be something like
chmod 666 /dev/tty
As I'm quite reluctant to do this, I'd like to know fix this.

BTW, is this the official FAQ
?  Cause it's down since 2 days.
