Red Hat Product Errata RHBA-2007:0382 normal SHIPPED_LIVE mc bug fix and enhancement update 2007-10-31 13:39:22 UTC

Description Tomas Mraz 2007-04-16 11:54:57 UTC
mc incorrectly substitutes '_' with '\137' when '\0137' or '_' should have been
used instead. mc thus cannot change to subdir containing '_' or issue commands
containing '_' - it will be incorrectly replaced with the sequence above.

Other characters might be affected too, I didn't test them.

This really breaks working with mc and should be fixed as soon as possible.
