[Pkg-mc-devel] Bug#606331: mc regression: panel configuration on startup; view search configuration

Package: mc
Version: 3:
Severity: important

Compared to older mc versions, this one has a number of regressions,
among these:

• Esc+o no longer makes the two panels equal, but is the equivalent
  of Esc+o Tab Enter Tab Cur-Down (already in Lenny).

• Searching in View now cycles through the file instead of stopping
  at the bottom, which is kinda bad since you don’t know whether
  that was it or not.

• On startup, the left panel is always active, and both panels always
  have the current working directory inside (unless started with one
  or two directories as arguments), instead of the currently active
  panel (left/right) and the position of the _in_active panel being
  read from the configuration file.

There’s probably a lot more, but I just got annoyed by those at the
moment (also can’t find options to disable them).
