You needn't, but you shouldn't be surprised it's reported again when it  
isn't visible on mc's bug page.

Since I never edited the mc bindings file, these "user settings" are in  
fact "mc authors' settings". And no matter they're "authors' settings"  
 from years ago, mc should not choke on them.

Yes. I'm unable to reproduce this, but got hit by #580109. So it didn't  
help much.
