Hello Felix,
First of all, I'm sorry for this late answer. I was very busy and I could
not take care of mc package during this time.
I agree with you, but when you sent your message it was already too late.
Debian stretch was in deep freeze.
I'm building the new version for sid branch.
The better I can do is to backport this new version after some weeks of testing.
IMHO this bug is not grave enought to introduce a new version of mc in the next
stretch sub version.
Thank you for your help.
