    17 It contains the lifetime of a directory cache entry measured in seconds. I've adjusted the default value to 900 seconds (same as in ftpfs). 
    1823 
    19 This option is not configurable through the user interface, yet - one can change it only by directly editing MC's ini file. I plan to fix this soon.

    21 To test the new code you need to fetch MC from the cvs repository or grab a snapshot.

    2653Reading large remote directories via fish (shell link) 
     54 
    2755over slow network links causes an infinite or at least very long 
     56 
    2857loop when mc tries to read the directory multiple times. 
    2958 
    30 This is due to the fish directory timeout being hardcoded to 10 
    31 seconds, whereas reading a 15000 entry directory via a 64kbit/s link will take two minutes (way longer if not using compression). This means the directory objects will be marked obsolete 
    32 before the directory is even loaded, causing an immediate reload once finished, with this pattern sometimes repeating even more often. 
    3359 
    34 That timeout should be tied to the (user settable) ftp directory timeout, or be given its own user settable value; at the very least it should be set to a sane value (that is, >> 10 seconds)
