Subshell not working when MC started from Zsh.

Built with GLib 2.32.4
Using the S-Lang library with terminfo database
With builtin Editor
With subshell support as default
With support for background operations
With mouse support on xterm and Linux console
With support for X11 events
With internationalization support

To reproduce problem you can try:

su - $(whoami) -s /bin/zsh -c /usr/bin/mc # sleeps more than 5 secs at startup, then starts but subshell not working

Indeed. It broke at some point after 4.8.11.

An easier way of reproducing: SHELL=/usr/bin/zsh /usr/bin/mc

It sleeps for 10 seconds, as per src/subshell.c feed_subshell()'s wtime.

Please see the attached fix.
I'm not sure the result is exactly what's intended, but it seems to work, and I took the idea from https://git.gnome.org/browse/vte/tree/src/vte.sh?h=vte-0-36 .
