[Pkg-mc-devel] Bug#681773: mc: segfaults when /tmp/mc-root is not owned by root

Package: mc
Version: 3:4.8.3-3
Severity: minor

# mc
Directory /tmp/mc-root is not owned by you
Segmentation fault 

OK, admittedly (no idea why, though):

drwx------ 2 tomcat55 adm      40 Jul 10 11:01 mc-root/

Still should not segfault, IMO. Minor inconvenience, at best.
After rm -rf /tmp/mc-root, it works.
