[Pkg-mc-devel] Bug#824359: mc: breaks paste in vte-based terminals

Package: mc
Version: 3:4.8.17-1
Severity: normal

I'm afraid that the new version of mc fails to clean up the terminal
settings when exiting.  If the selection is "foo", what's getting pasted is:

The actual bytes are:
00000000  1b 5b 32 30 30 7e 66 6f  6f 1b 5b 32 30 31 7e 0a  |.[200~foo.[201~.|

There's no regression in xterm or rxvt, there is in xfce4-terminal and
lxterminal (and presumably anything else vte based).

Reinstalling mc=3:4.8.15-2 (testing) makes paste work again.

This is so called "bracketed paste mode", set by "\e[?2004h" which new mc
enables at start.  To clear it, please emit "\e[?2004l".
