Package: mc
Version: 3:
Severity: important

The mc can't open files with space(s) in names for editation by mcedit as
external editor. When i press F4 on such file, the new empty file is opened and
named only by first part of the  real name -> "Mark read" is opened as empty
"Mark" file. But editing such files by mcedit as internal editor is still
posiible without any problems.
