This looks horrible, and I have not seen
anything like this for ... quite some time.
This might be a hardware problem. Can you go
to /dev and do "ls -l FILE" on each individual
file? If it crashes, at which file?
If it doesn't crash, we will have to take a look
at mc, and write a small test program that does
what mc does.
(or you could use gdb with mc...)
