Package: mc
Version: 3:
Followup-For: Bug #599703

(really, any 4.7.x version, either upstram o debian. Installed in any debian version)

In lenny and before, I had sort_order=time in ~/.mc/ini

I dicovered that the equivalent in squeeze (and generally in mc 4.7.x) is
sort_order=mtime in ~/.mc/panels.ini

The migration from the lenny (or before) version to a 4.7.x version puts instead
the *incorrect* line sort_order=time in ~/.mc/panels.ini

At least this happens with auto_save_setup=0 and
auto_save_setup_panels=0 (or no directive for auto_save_setup_panels) in

The migration is instead correct when one has auto_save_setup=0 and
auto_save_setup_panels=1 in ~/.mc/panels.ini ; I have not tried

So the bug I possibly still here, but a workaround is clear and clean.
