I tend to be that way a little too, but I'm testing things on ubuntu 9.10 right 
now and when the mc there wouldn't recognize ~/.mc, I just built using the 
latest source.  Works fine, and I gotta add that the new "skins" feature is a 
great idea -- you can now set a different appearance for each instance using a 
command line switch.   Plus there's a few included so you don't have to spend 
any time making up various color schemes.

Ctrl-x then p (this panel), ctrl-x then ctrl-p (other panel).  Ie, for this 
panel release ctrl before you press p.

Those two are under F1 (help) ->Contents->Keys: Shell Command line.  Alt-p and 
Alt-n (for command history) are there too if you don't know about those!!

Somebody also sent me this and forgot to CC the list:

>Alt-a -- get the fullpath for the current panel directory
>Alt-A -- get the fullpath for the other panel directory

Same thing only easier!  I don't see them anywhere in Help tho.
