Is mc linked with ncurses?  (I don't believe so).

i don't see this problem in FC2. it works for me here. Could you please 
try to configure your font setting in konsole.

mc just uses slang lib.

I used the default font setting of konsole. Also, it appers not only 
on the case of mc, but in the case of e.g. crisp console mode (cr). 
They both use 'frames' around text and these frames are spoilt after 
some pgup-pgdown together. I can attach xwd from other application if
