I compiled and installed mc on my Linux (2.4 kernel) box last night. A bit of a shock, going from 4.6 to 4.7 and meeting a crazy fruit salad cacophony of colours.

I had to do the usual cons.saver dance (I gotta run it setgid to 'tty' or setuid to 'root' for it to work with the console), but that's almost a reflex by now.

Grumbles spotted so far (in the internal editor):

1. Concatenating lines (say, by reformatting a paragraph) at the top-of-screen looks strange, even though the text is OK. No idea if it's endemic to slang-mc, as I have not tried curses-mc.

2. Search-and-replace fails on some cases involving newlines in the search string: Two newlines together; newline at the beginning.

Your stereo is good enough when, on playing the helicopter sequence in
Pink Floyd's "Another Brick In The Wall", you have to hold on tight to
keep the rotor wash from blowing you away.
