Description Tomas Caithaml 2008-12-07 14:58:19 UTC
If I run mc under root, it gets SIGSEGV on startup.

I tried to investigate this bug and ran into this I applied that patch and it seems to solve the problem.

Is it possible to include that patch into portage? It is already in upstream CVS but it could take long time before new version comes out...
