Internal viewer locks up on backwards wildcard search

I was using the internal viewer on a 30,956,322 byte text file. It's the output of `rpm -qipl` on 3863 rpms.

I was searching for 'xpm.*', wildcard search, and hitting 'n' a bit too fast when I passed what I thought I 
was looking for, so I did a backwards search, just the same, and the viewer immediately went infinite, 
processor maxxed, completely unresponsive. I thought 'Hey, it has a lot to think about' so I let it go for a 
couple minutes to see if it would clear, but no. I had to pull a `kill -15` on it. I've tried a few 
variations so far, and it only seems to be 'Wildcard Search/Backwards' that causes this trouble.

Here's my mc:
GNU Midnight Commander 4.8.10
Built with GLib 2.16.6
Using the S-Lang library with terminfo database
With builtin Editor
With subshell support as default
With support for background operations
With mouse support on xterm and Linux console
With support for X11 events
With internationalization support
With multiple codepages support
Virtual File Systems: cpiofs, tarfs, sfs, extfs, ftpfs, fish
Data types: char: 8; int: 32; long: 32; void *: 32; size_t: 32; off_t: 64;

Kernel 2.6.6, gcc 3.4.1. Any other infos might be useful?

Peace and Cheer
