Package: mc
Version: 3:
Severity: minor


if I start mcedit from command line, and mc is already running,
the screen becomes black and no text is visible.
I can see only top and bottom lines (status and hints).
Then, if I press any arrow key, the text become visible and everything is OK.

To reproduce:

$ mc
$ mcedit ~/.mc/ini
