Package: mc
Version: 3:4.8.12-1
Usertags: serious

When I run mc on a virtual terminal, under screen(1), mc is super slow, 
consuming 50% of CPU, and spewing literally hundreds of messages like 
this to syslog:

mc: *** info
mc: Warning: closing connection
/usr/sbin/gpm[2296]: *** warning [daemon/processconn.c(133)]:
/usr/sbin/gpm[2296]: Failed gpm connect attempt by uid 500 for vc /dev/tty0
