Herbert and all friends of the MC,

because the MC is my main tool for nearly everything, I
think I should share my newest observation.

Fascinating, indeed. I have just updated mc to 4.7.0, which
is on OS 8.0-RC1, and I don't have this problem. At "make
config", I had set everything to [X] except X11. When I
press ^o, I can "switch" between the MC and the subshell,
even as an ordinary user.
