The '-' and the '#' are required to reproduce this bug.

Comment 1 by Leonard den Ottolander <leonardjo> at Mon 14 Nov 2005 05:40:39 PM UTC:

I can reproduce this with 4.6.1a.

On the first attempt I see an error "Can't open /dev/fd0: No such 
device or address Cannot initialize 'A:'". Consequent attempts give 
me an error "Cannot overwrite directory "path/asd-test.a#a" No such 
file or directory(2)".

Smells like extfs is mapping #a to "drive A" (/dev/fd0)

see ${DATADIR}/mc/extfs/a

In a way it's not really a bug, but rather a misunderstanding
of filenames between you and mc ;-P

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • severity set to no branch

So, I don't have ability to check if this issue exists, but I hope after #2361 this was fixed.

If not, reopen this ticket, please.
