[Pkg-mc-devel] Bug#469744: mc: doesn't copy/move directories over ssh

Package: mc
Version: 1:4.6.2~pre1-6
Severity: normal

I've just lost ~100MB of photos because mc seems to be unable to
copy/move a directory into some place in the remote user's home

copying/moving a dir from my local system to remotehost:/tmp works well,
but fails ignobly if I try to copy the dir into
user at remotehost:/home/user/somewhere: it transfers the files but
they can't be found nowhere on the remote host. You can obviously
imagine that trying to move a directory adds a funny side effect... :(

Perhaps also this is something related:
while trying to do some testing before filing this bugreport, I found
that moving a directory from local to remote:/tmp and moving it back,
correctly creates the new local copy, but leaves the empty dir on the
remote host.
