Package: mc
Version: 1:4.6.0-4.6.1-pre1-1
Severity: normal

I have a bash prompt that prints username@machinename:path$ 
with the user and machine names in blue. Additionaly, the 
same information is printed in the window title of an X
terminal. The code looks like this:

\[\033[34m\]\u@\h:\[\033[0m\]\w\$ \[\033]0;\u@\h:\w\007\]

This was configured according to the information in the Bash
Prompt HOWTO and works fine with xterm, gnome-terminal, the 
shell, etc.

In mc, however, it has two effects: When mc starts,
(in monochrome mode) the screen remains black until some keys 
are pressed. Then, the shell prompt at the bottom is wrong: 
It displays the string for the window title, too:

neudecke@pegasus:~$ 0;neudecke@pegasus:~ 

The first problem is of course more annoying (at first, I
thought, mc was hanging), but the latter can also be quite
confusing, especially with longer paths than '~'.

Kind regards

I'll close this bug, since I can't reproduce it with the newest mc.
