No, you should definitely write a detailed bug report to the MC
developers. They are very receptive for user input and do fix the
stuff you complain about although ready-to-apply patches are more than
welcome. Check out the MC site at "http://mc.blackdown.org/mc/"; or
write directly to "Miguel de Icaza <miguel@nuclecu.unam.mx>".
