wow, nice to learn something new. I compiled *.deb without problems.
Memory leak bug is gone. 

Now I can report another bug, heh. And mc is still unusable. Quick
view screws totally all the display if I look inside a binary file.
And also it moves the cursor to top of the screen, making it
impossible to reach files below a binary one. Ctrl-L refreshes
display, but still the files below it are unreachable by cursor. I
must turn off quick view to reach them. I enjoyed the capability to
quick view binary files, very useful sometimes, like when checking
the headers of HP48G libraries, or looking at magic numbers.

And also, the white color on directories is gone, that's bad, I'm used
to having different color for directories than files.

Guys, can you just tell me, what patch should I apply to mc in
squeeze -pre1 to just remove the memory leak? To trigger the bug, you
only need to Ctrl-X q move cursor in right panel onto some file to
see its content in left panel, and resize the terminal window. After 40
seconds mc is using 14 GB of RAM, and hangs.

thanks a lot
