    6 ------------------------------------- 
    7 The mc's built-in samba library which is used to access data across 
    8 smb links is taken from an old samba version. This can cause problems since things change as time goes on. For example - current samba version supports something like: "interface = eth1" in  
    9 smb.conf, the version included in mc does not. This leads to calling gethostname("eth1") 3 times at startup (on my box). Recently I have had some problems with the DNS servers I use. I had to wait 3  
    10 minutes (!) before mc started because it tried to resolve "eth1" (2 times ) and "ETH1" (which of course wasn't possible because of the DNS server failure).
