I was the maintainer between versions 4.5.55 and 4.6.0, and there was
very little new code added at that time.  In fact, I was mostly removing
or simplifying code.

I really doubt that 4.6.0 is noticeably slower that 4.5.55 if compiled
under the same conditions.

I would prefer that you stop mistrusting mc developers and use the
latest version.  But it's your choice.  You can spend days configuring
KDE as much as you want.  Just make sure you are using an old version,
so that your results are useless for other users.
