I use mc quite often, and am a big fan.
I recently upgraded our environment from SuSE 9 to SuSE 10.1 using
packaged YaST installs of mc.
When I ssh to one of my SuSE 10.1 boxes, I usually type mc -a to force
the ascii pluses and such in the display. I now get control codes
around the frame of the mc display, I get colors, but no "lines", and
the display starts to break with the text dialogs for quitting, etc.
Locally mc has no problems in a VNC session. I use Cygwin ssh on my
Windows laptop to get to the server. mc works fine locally in Cygwin.
But when I ssh to the SuSE 10.1 remote server, I can't even get the mc
-a to work without interface problems.
SuSE 9 remote servers work fine. Cygwin/sshd remote servers work
fine. SuSE 10.1 only, has display problems.
On SuSE 10.1 it acts as if it's ignoring the -a flag
A mc -V produces this...
