Function keys are a story for themselves. No probs in a xterm but problems
on the linux-console for both programs here.

Maybe I have only an old version of git running, but the comfort of mc is 
much higher than that of git.
"git" is a GNU-tool with the old philosohy "learn all 74 keystrokes 
or you loose".
"mc" is a GNU-tool (owned by FSF!) of a (hopefully) new generation with a 
fancy and very functional menuing-system. 

The differences between git and mc are not the working (or not 
working) function keys.
