[Pkg-mc-devel] Bug#542196: mc: Pressing <Enter> on executables does not execute

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


since the last update of mc in testing I observed that simply pressing
<Enter> on a highlighted executable does not work any more.  Instead I

/tmp/mc-tillea/mcext73jeqd: line 2: .//home/tillea/tmp/my_mc_test: No such file or directory

when pressing <Enter> on the file /home/tillea/tmp/my_mc_test.

Kind regards


PS: I also get this strange message when starting mc:

     Pressing <Fix it> does not help on all computers I'm using.  Should I
     issue another bug report for this or is there a simple explanation what
     I'm doing wrong?
