My ubuntu release:
Description: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
I use Kubuntu.
apt-cache policy mc

I use mcedit as my favourite editor.
mcedit is part of the mc package.
I tried pasting into mc some text copied from kate with new lines.
MAILTO=example at example.com
# m h dom mon dow command
All the lines are now made into 1 in mcedit:
MAILTO=vlad at velko.orgDISPLAY=:0.0# m h dom mon dow command
I tried copying from konsole, kate - same result.
When pasting into kate - all is ok.
So it is clearly a mcedit bug...
