This has been discussed on the mailing list many times. Searching the
archives should help. Setting TERM properly is vital for any curses
based app out there. I admit that it causes confusion but this is how
it works.

         * fish.c (fish_file_store): Improve the upload speed by using the
         `head' utility when possible. Fallback to a new improved `dd' method
         if `head' is not availaible or just stupid.

I don't know how slack build their MC package . You may want to check
whether this patch is included - if it is not icluded you could ask the 
maintainer to add it. It should make a difference.
