Is there a way to limit hex view to 10h wide for proper formatting. When I
look at a boot sector, 05 AA should always be bytes 0E and 0F of 10 total,
but usually they are 06 and 07, which is annoying and makes it hard to follow
and find things expected in 10 byte rows.

It's currently not possible without changing mc's source code. If you 
want to do that, it's in src/view.c, the view_update_bytes_per_line 
function. Before the assert() call, insert: if (bytes > 16) bytes = 16;

Thanks for your time to reply. That's really a non-option for me. I use mc on
many versions of many distros on many multiboot systems, and would never be
able to spend the time keeping up with the 40+ different mc installs whether
or not I had rebuilt if I even had the time to do that, which I don't. I'm a
user/tester, not a programmer. I need mc to solve problems, not be problems.
