Locking directory panes while cd'ing

Hi. Is it possible to have a button that would allow one to 
lock directory panes while cd'ing to a new directory tree, 
then toggle the button again to unlock the panes please, 
once both directory panes are at the required location?

The reason is I like to have the same directory structure 
open in both panes. I also have a 'tmp-backups' sub-dir for 
making copies of the files in my current directory.

At the moment I have to cd to a particular location in the 
left-hand pane. Then TAB to the right-hand pane, and do the 
same thing again.

If it was possible to 'lock' the directory panes together, 
so that wherever I cd to in the left-hand directory pane, 
the right-hand pane would automatically follow in sync with 
the left-hand pane. This would be alot quicker I think.

mc is my favourite directory browser, file viewer and editor.

Kind Regards

Keith Roberts
