The shell is busy. This is a feature. Yes, it is annoying but when you
understand it you don't have this problem.

In mc hit Ctrl-o again. Hit enter, in the shell. Ctrl-o to get back to
mc. All done.

I haven't looked at the code yet, so I'm merely guessing that mc detects
busy-shell by looking at keystrokes before passing them to the shell. That
could explain why leafing through history flags busy if you don't finish
with a newline.
