I've got round the problem on my own machines by copying and

be nice not to have to do that.

Thanks, I had already seen that. It seems to me that the behaviour has changed with - before that, MC would act as though 'auto save setup' was still in force, since the path information was saved in panels.ini. Now, unless there is already a panels.ini, it simply starts with both panes set to the startup directory.

:) Personally, I'm much rather have the behaviour from the 4.6.x series, where I could select the right hand pane start directory and save the settings, as well as turning off autosave setup.
