Package: mc
Version: 1:4.6.1-6
Severity: normal

I've write following program to help localize this bug:

#include <sys/types.h> 
#include <sys/stat.h> 
#include <fcntl.h> 
#include <stdio.h> 
#include <stdlib.h> 
#include <string.h> 
int main() { 
  int fa,fb; 
  for (fa=0;fa<255;fa++) 
    for (fb=fa;fb<255;fb++) { 
      if (fa>'a'&&fa<'z'||fa>'A'&&fa<'Z')
      if (fb>'a'&&fb<'z'||fb>'A'&&fb<'Z')
      char buf[100];
      int fd=creat(buf,O_WRONLY); 
      unsigned char fc; 
      for (fc=fa;fc<fb;fc++)  
        write(fd, &fc, 1);  
      write(fd, text, strlen(text));
      close (fd); 
  return 0; 
I find that, after running this program, 
1. opening the 154_155.tst file 
for view (just pressing F3) automagically brings to terminal "Enter 
regilar expression dialog" with 1;2c text pre-entered to it.
Such behavior produces extra pleasure then you open any binary file 
(especially that mistakenly open for view), becouse sometimes where is 
no way get rid of "Enter regular expression" dialog with text 
preentered except killing mc by pid.
Also, this feature carefully prevents me from using this new bright 
version of mc as a hex editor/viewer in normal way - that was my 
famous hex editor and viewer.
2.Opening 128_129.tst file give me some garbage on screen. First symbol 
seem missing completely.

This bug seem very stable and reproduce itself for several months.

I hope I can help somehow...
