Description of problem:
I tested it few times, always with the same result. When I'm using mc at the
same time as new mail come to the spooler mc crashes with Segmentation Fault.
Before it fails the "You Have New Mail" message is shown at the bottom of the
screen. I'm using sendmail as SMTP server. Also, I'm using 2.4.17 kernel with
newnat (H323 forwarding) and grsecurity patches (so it's not a standard RedHat

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
