Missing text attributes in MC 4.7.x


I use MC under Linux with NCurses on monochrome terminals (standard xterm under Linux or Teraterm under MS Windows). The new 4.7.x series is now pretty unusable in this environment, because all text attributes (bold, inverse) do not show up.

I have put 2 screenshots from version 4.6.2 and on my personal webspace for illustration: http://www.uni-koeln.de/~a0045/mc462.png http://www.uni-koeln.de/~a0045/mc4702.png

I could live with the fact that the buttons, menus and dialogs come without attributes, but the file lists cannot be used in this form: you cannot see the current file and/or any marked files.

I see two items in the latest change file, which could have something to do with this issue, but obviously they did not really change my observed problems:
  * Broken transparency if MC is built with NCurses (#1657)
  * Selections not visible on monochrome terminals (#1972)
