Package: mc
Version: 2:4.6.2~git20080311-3
Severity: normal


quite often, when I browse some archives with mc over ftp, after some  
time, mc closes the ftp connection. From then on, browsing the archive  
doesn't work, for example files appear as empty when viewing or copying,  
etc. Moreover, when I reopen the ftp, enter the same archive and try to  
copy/view the same file again, it is still empty.
