[Pkg-mc-devel] Bug#592396: mc: file rename (F6) with non-usual characters failed

Package: mc
Version: 3:
Severity: normal


	Today I found a bug (I think) while renaming some files (with F6). The source
filename could be anything, for example:


	The destination file has this format:

	Colega, ¿Dónde está mi coche? (2000).avi

	Resulting file (after renaming with F6) is:

	Colega, ¿Dónde está mi cochecolega_donde_esta_mi_coche.avi

	Seems that character '?' is causing the problem (replacing/appending
the old name)... Renaming from shell with next command works fine:

	mv 'colega_donde_esta_mi_coche.avi' 'Colega, ¿Dónde está mi coche?
