Old version of Midnight Commander

Hi all

One of the reasons that I have switched over to using Debian is that its
display of console utilities such as Midnight Commander works much better
than Red Hat and derivatives from version 8 on.  However I have still
found a display problem (a screen refresh failure) with the stable version
of mc that is being currently distributed: 4.6.1-pre3-3.  I wrote to the
MC mailing list and was told:

The later version did solve the problems I was having.  Is there anyone 
who is working on upgrading the standard Debian mc package?
