Package: mc
Version: 3:4.8.1-1
Severity: normal

When I log-in I get:

> bash: /usr/share/mc/bin/mc.sh: No such file or directory

I found out:
> $ ls -l /usr/share/mc/bin/
> total 0
> lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 29 Feb 27 05:45 mc-wrapper.sh -> ../../../lib/mc/mc-wrapper.sh

I also chngelog:

> mc (3:4.8.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
>   * New upstream release [December 2011]
> ...
>   * install scripts to /usr/lib/mc

I guess what you need is:
> $ ls -l /usr/share/mc/bin/
> total 0
> lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 29 Feb 27 05:45 mc.sh -> ../../../lib/mc/mc-wrapper.sh

I see no more mc.csh link from /usr/share/mc/bin/

I think updating links as above while updating these manpage to point to
/usr/lib/mc/mc-wrapper.sh and /usr/lib/mc/mc-wrapper.csh

For now, I will change my ~/.bashrc to use /usr/lib/mc/mc-wrapper.sh
