Nope.  It does save the ini file there as appropriate.  Also, I run root.  In 
any case, I chmod'd the hotlist and the directory to 777 but no luck.

One thing I find a little strange here is that it appears to keep a copy of the 
hotlist in memory, since it will add an entry, and the entry stays there until 
you exit.  But it is not written into the hotlist file.  Here's something else 
wierd about that: if I manually edit the hotlist file, the change is 
immediately reflected in mc AND any new entry added via mc is gone.  I presume 
it checks the mtime or something and decides whether to reload or use the copy 
maintained in memory.
