RAR VFS incorrectly recognizes UnRAR version

Description of the problem:

Some options in .rarrc configuration file can make RAR VFS to incorrectly recognize UnRAR as version 4.x instead of 5.x.

Version of Midnight Commander:

mc-4.8.12 and unrar-5.1.7

Steps to reproduce the problem:

  1. Create in the user's home directory .rarrc file with the following line inside:

switches= -idc

  1. Start mc
  2. Press <Enter> on any rar archive
  3. Instead of RAR VFS containing archive contents, Midnight Commander displays set of error messages "Cannot parse: ...."


Add -cfg- option to the command used to detect UnRAR version. This option prevents UnRAR from reading configuration from .rarrc file. Please find a patch to RAR VFS attached.
