Which version of MC are you using and on which distro. Some
months ago Thomas reported a bug in the mouse handling code
when "use_8th_bit_as_meta" is set in you configuration file
($HOME/.mc/ini). What you see might be a manifestation of this
bug. It was fixed in CVS but you distro might be missing this
particular patch. So first of all check whether you have set
"use_8th_bit_as_meta" to 1 and change it to 0. If you still have
a problem after that let us know.
