  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.

  For example:
  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...

  my settings ins mcedit are
