Sorry, but it's not obvious. Would you point out, what I should look at?

The option is "Auto save panels setup", therefore both panels should be affected by this option.

I am not referring to the case, when dirs are provided explicitly.

Thanks.

"Auto save panels setup" means in general the saving of panel layout (mode, size, sort order, etc). When mc starts as mc without directories, the current directory is loaded in the active panel and passive panel in this case uses path saved in the panels.ini file. This behavior is expected by users and should not be changed. The directory of active panel is not saved in panels.ini at all.

If you want mc always to start in same directories you could adjust /usr/lib/mc/mc-wrapper.sh or /usr/lib/mc/mc-wrapper.csh
