[Pkg-mc-devel] Bug#626171: mc: Browsing of .deb files broken

Package: mc
Version: 3:
Severity: normal


Since very recently, browsing of .deb files doesn't work anymore, mc shows a
few error dialogs like "Cannot parse:
/var/cache/apt/archives/libopenal-dev_1%3a1.13-2_amd64.deb 1      CONTENTS/",
and both DEBIAN and CONTENT folders are empty (INFO and INSTALL look ok).

It could be a result of the recent perl transition, at least I didn't notice
the problem before that.

Best regards,
Christian Ohm
