Package: mc
Version: 2:4.6.2~git20080311-1
Severity: normal

When replacing text (i.e. base) with empty string (removing found text) i always get Segmentation fault.
Tested it on i386 and also amd64 with same result.

Screenshot i always get:
/root/aaa          [----]  0 L:[  1+ 0   1/388] *(0   /8976b)= a  97 0x61
