It is mc. It shouldn't had compiled with ncurses. I explicitely told it 
not to do it. I'm working on fixing it. I tried with the previous version 
of mc and it does it right. I might have to "downgrade" one version level 
(they are very similar, don't worry). I hope I don't have to do that and 
instead fix the current version.

If you want to report it, it should go to "mc". 

Thanks for your patience,
