Package: mc
Version: 2:4.7.0-pre1-3
Severity: important

I could easily use sudo with mc 2:4.6.2-2, but not with current version:

$ ls -l ~/.mc/*ini
-rw------- 1 jwilk users 2347 Aug 15 14:14 /home/jwilk/.mc/ini
-rw------- 1 jwilk users  715 Aug 15 14:14 /home/jwilk/.mc/panels.ini

$ sudo mc
[play around, exit]

$ ls -l ~/.mc/*ini
-rw------- 1 root root 2347 Aug 15 14:15 /home/jwilk/.mc/ini
-rw------- 1 root root  715 Aug 15 14:15 /home/jwilk/.mc/panels.ini

$ mc
[my settings are lost]
