Now it is getting even wierder :-)
The PC I am using has two NICs. The problem only occurs if eth0 is not
connected. running strace mc shows that mc is trying to query the DNS
It can't, so it retries for 30 sec, then stops and I can use it.
How come mc tries to lookup the DNS server at startup??
How do I disable this feature?
