The character code of the LATIN SMALL LETTER O is U+006F. There used to
be times when pressing the <Alt> key just added the 0x0080 bit to a
character code, which would result in U+00EF. Apparently, this behavior
is hitting you here.

It's not mc's fault. You should probably look in the documentation of
your X11 terminal emulator or the X11 configuration.
