If a panels.ini exists, MC is using it, and reading stored paths from

display the startup directory.
I've got round the problem on my own machines by copying and
hand-modifying a panels.ini from another installation, but it would
be nice not to have to do that.
Look at http://www.midnight-commander.org/ticket/1663.
Unfortunately, this option is not documented and not accessable via
any configuration dialog.
Thanks, I had already seen that. It seems to me that the behaviour has
changed with 188.8.131.52 - before that, MC would act as though 'auto save
setup' was still in force, since the path information was saved in
panels.ini. Now, unless there is already a panels.ini, it simply starts
with both panes set to the startup directory.
:) Personally, I'm much rather have the behaviour from the 4.6.x series,
where I could select the right hand pane start directory and save the
settings, as well as turning off autosave setup.
