Package: mc
Version: 2:4.6.2~git20080311-4
Severity: normal

mc segfaults if I try to copy or move a file to a remote host where the same
filename already exists and 'append' is chosen. I tried this between three
installations of Lenny 5.0.4:

- Thinkpad T23 with standard kernel;
- PC with self-built kernel (see below);
- virtual machine with amd64 and standard kernel.

The problem only appears when the source host is pushing the file to the
target host. It does not appear when the target hosts pulls the file from
the source.

Typical error message:

mc[2584]: segfault at 4f ip b74de38b sp bffffb558 error 4 in
Segmentation fault
