[Pkg-mc-devel] Bug#509091: mc hangs up on attempt to enter .zip archive with encrypted headers

Package: mc
Version: 2:4.6.2~git20080311-4
Severity: normal

To reproduce:

1. Create archive foo.zip with encrypted files like
$ echo "test" >foo.txt
$ zip -e -r foo foo.txt
  (Select an arbitrary password)

2. Start mc, select foo.zip on a panel, hit Enter and try to read or
   copy foo.txt

mc hangs up

The problem is the same as in #324920: mc starts a program to handle
the archive - unzip in the case here, that program tries to read the
password from stdin and fails.
