Hallo, Juan,

Du meintest am 15.09.09 zum Thema Question about auto-save setup:

> 5- Save the configuration.

May be "panels.ini" is the bad guy who disturbs "auto_save_setup=no".

"~/.mc/ini" leaves unchanged, but "~/.mc/panels.ini" is changed on and  

Perhaps I make "panels.ini" write-protected ...

1) go (left and right) into the desired standard directories,
2) go left
3) exit mc

4)    lsattr +i ~/.mc/panels.ini

("lsattr -i" unprotects)

It's a bad hack, I know.

Viele Gruesse!
