When user is logged in to the X session on the console and the same user is
logged in via ssh and trying to run mc, the mc process hangs on /dev/gpmctl:

$ strace -p 19513
Process 19513 attached - interrupt to quit
connect(8, {sa_family=AF_FILE, path="/dev/gpmctl"}, 13 <unfinished ...>
Process 19513 detached
