[Pkg-mc-devel] Bug#568138: broken mcview with binary files

Package: mc
Version: 3:
Severity: normal

Recently the internal viewer started "interpreting" the content of binary
files. If I try to view, for example, the raw content of an image (with F8)
it immediatly opens the search window with "2c?1;2c?1;2c?1;2c?1;2c" (or
some variation) as search string, reopening it if I try to exit from that
window. I have to keep pressed ESC until it closes the viewer, and I'm left
with a messed up terminal and the lower command line filled with the same
2c?1; pattern.

(could this bug be related to #364345?)
