This only happens when compiled without X support, but running mcedit within konsole (under X). If X support is enabled, then pressing shift+enter does nothing at all.
This also happens when connecting to a remote server via ssh, where mc has no X support (because there is no X at all) and therefore it is very annoying :-(
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge mc without X use flag
2. open mcedit from konsole
3. type anything
4. press shift+enter
Does it still occur with mc-4.6.1 ?
no, seems to work in 4.6.1
Thanks for reporting back, closing. 4.6.1 should get stable keywords soon, see Bug 130299.
