Description Tomas Mraz 2007-04-16 07:54:57 EDT
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.
