Package: mc
Version: 2:4.6.2~git20080311-2
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

First reported this bug in launchpad: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mc/+bug/243790

When I built and installed mc-4.6.2~git20080311 I found that it lacks the feature I love the most: visible tabs and 
whitespace in the editor. I found that the cause is debian/patches/utf8/mc-utf8.patch, which pretty much removes the heart 
of the feature (search for visible_tabs and visible_tws handled in case '\t' and case ' ' in file mc/edit/editdraw.c).

I have created a patch for this, either place it in debian/patches/utf8 and add to the series or merge with mc-utf8.patch.
