[Pkg-mc-devel] Bug#844331: mc: file transfer hangs upon "Skip all" on io errors

Package: mc
Version: 3:4.8.18-1
Severity: normal

When a "Copy" or "Move" operation hits an io error, it offers to "Skip" the
current file, "Skip all", "Retry", "Abort".  If you select "Skip all", it
will ask you once whether to delete the incomplete file, then hang.  The UI
is still responsive, showing an ever-increasing ETA, yet no progress is
being done.

On the other hand, mere "Skip" does work -- it asks two questions per file
(Skip then delete incomplete), which is greatly tedious but allows progress.
