[Pkg-mc-devel] Bug#777117: mc: mcedit starts mc instead of editor

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

I just tried to run 'mcedit somefile' (where “somefile” exists)
on a sid system. Instead, mc opened. I re-tried on a user with
clean $HOME directory (I used the postgres user ☺), and the same,
so my mc config (which enables using the external editor) is not
at fault.

mcedit is a nice editor for Unix beginners who know the DOS world
already, so it ought to be callable. Plus, it registers as an
editor alternative, so it ought to work…
