since the latest mc update to 22.214.171.124 (Fedora 11 x86's RPM) I noticed
several functional changes (why not) but also an annoying behaviour
I'd call "a bug".
If I switch off the panels (C-o), type in a command not ended with
[ENTER], then C-o again and press F3 to enter a directory, mc will
execute the command I've typed on terminal side. This is a change since
former versions, and to me not wanted at all.
A side effect when I switch back to the terminal side, is that the
history command is corrupted (a cd "`printf "%b" blabla is concatened
to the latest command, that has been unexpectedly executed).
I noticed other changes, towards colors but I'm not sure it's a user
issue problem since I use my own colors from command-line.
