You mean I should duplicate/overwrite /etc/mc/mc.ext (I don't have
a specific ~/.mc/mc.ext file, since I configure everything via
mailcap)? I don't think this is a good idea.

Is there any reason why a spawned process' stderr output should be
printed to the pty where mc runs? I can't see any, and then it
really just makes more sense to block it altogether.
