Package: mc
Version: 3:
Severity: important

Consider the following sutuation:

Create in mc some directory called "dir", then cd to it. Create some other
directories here, for example "1" and "2". The press Ctrl+O (go to

$ ls -l
total 0
drwxr-sr-x 2 root staff 48 May 3 21:41 1
drwxr-sr-x 2 root staff 48 May 3 21:41 2

That's ok.

Then go to another instance of mc and completely remove "dir" directory with
F8. Then from the same instance of mc create "dir" again, and create some
text file, for example "1.txt". Then go back go first ms and its subshell:

$ ls -l
total 0

First subshell now cannot read it contents. I need to press Ctrl+O again, cd
to the parent directory and cd back to "dir" to let it work.
