Description of problem:
The borders for mc are displayed using wrong characters in the new gnome
terminal. When I try to edit a file in mc using F4, mc takes 100% CPU time and
the whole system is not longer usable at all. F10 opens the menu of the gnome
terminal and does not close mc. System default language is german.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. startx, open a gnome terminal and start mc, system language is german
2. try to edit a file using F4, try to close mc using F10
3. watch the wrong borders of mc
F10 is not a bug; that's the "open menu" key. You can disable it in
I've opened a new bug for the "F4" edit problem as this also happens on the
console (Bug-ID: 68144). Nevertheless I think "F10" for open menu is a very
stupid choice. All people I know use mc in the gnome terminal and they all will
get very nervous with this new "feature".
F10 opens the menu in Java. F10 opens the menu on Windows. F10 is the standard
key for jumping to the menubar. There's a way to turn it off if you use mc. (mc
is the only terminal app that seems to use F10.)
borders issue is mc being ported to the new slang...

Apparently, I had the same problem with the borders of mc displaying wrong
characters, for the installation of HedHat 9.0 that comes with Moonlight
Commander ver 4.6.
What I did is - simply use the Moonlight Commander ver 4.5.55 that already
worded for me at the past.
only two things need to be done:
if anyone want this binaries, can contact me.
I don't believe this issue is still existent. Closing.
