Subject: Re: won't save hotlist

I just noticed that the 4.7.0-pre4 I built about a month ago, on a less used 
install, does not save the hotlist.  You can make changes and they stay in 
memory, but ~/.mc/hotlist is not updated; I'm having to edit it manually.
Check permissions on ls -alsR ~/.mc ?
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.

I noticed that when editing the hotlist by hand on Fedora
12, using mcedit from mc, I had to close any other instances
of mc, and start them again to get them to read the edited
hotlist. So it appears that mc only reads the hotlist when
it first starts?
