I have deleted the old configuration files, but that did not seem to
resolve the problem. However, I did discover something: if I change the
SHELL environment variable to anything other than /bin/zsh, it runs just
fine. I normally use the zsh shell. Note that /bin/zsh does exist in
/etc/shells, and that mc will run even if I put a non-existant program
name in SHELL. It just crashes on zsh. I think this has something to do
with the newer support for zsh internals. Should I just put "export
SHELL=/bin/bash" in my .zshenv and forget about it, or what?
