Reproduceable on x86 also, but initially tested on s390
This should not be a s390-showstopper, so I have marked this as bug for
all archs that should be worked on for the next RHL release.

wrong assignment... changing
I am using mc[serv]-4.5.51-36 on two i386s and an ia64, and I am seeing the
From one i386, I AM ABLE to connect to the mcserv on the other i386. If I try
to connect to the ia64's mcserv (from the same i386), not only does it not work,
but mc hangs and becomes totally unresponsive (strace reveals that it is stuck
on a read).
On the other hand, if I try to connect from the ia64 to the i386, I get the
message "Can't connect to server: Network is unreachable (101)." Interestingly,
I get the same error trying to connect from the ia64 to itself.
In no case am I able to reproduce the error described above.
Last I heard we're removing the mcserv feature, though I'm not familiar with the
details. Probably the fact that it doesn't work is a contributing factor, we
don't have the resources to actively develop mc.
