Description Hoyt Duff 2002-08-11 21:50:08 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: 
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.0.0-10; Linux) 
Description of problem: 
When in console mode, I need to open a new one as I can't exit 
from mc. When in X11, I can close the xterm. 
mc woked Ok in beta1 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
default from limbo2 
How reproducible: 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1.install mc 
2.select a file to edit 
3.press F4 
Actual Results:  mc stopped responding, would not close 
Expected Results:  should have opened the file in mcedit. 
Additional info: 
I did try the mc from rawhide -- same results. Using mcedit 
directly on a file produced a black screen. Perhaps it's a problem 
in mcedit?
