Package: mc
Version: 3:4.8.13-3
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I'm run mc, choose file, type esc-! and enter command like `cat
filename | grep some`.
Filtered view show me error box "Cannot create pipe streams", which is
not expected.
This is upstream bug and was patched in 4.8.15:

Please fix it in stable.
