[Pkg-mc-devel] Bug#709277: mc: command line argument #1 goes to left panel instead of right, #2 is ignored

Package: mc
Version: 3:4.8.5-1
Severity: normal


when running 'mc /foo /bar' normally mc starts up with the right
panel in /foo and the left panel in /bar (or whatever was saved
with the setup last, if only one argument).

Since the recent sid upgrade, instead, /foo is put into the left
panel wrongly, and if /bar is given it’s ignored.

This impedes my workflows quite severely.
