When saving changes to the settings, despite confirmation Setup is saved in ~/.mc/ini there is no such directory.
This was tested under Fedora12, CentOS 5.4 and Ubuntu 9.10 and behaviour was different.
In F12, CentOS it would save under root only, but not under regular user. Copying setup from root to /home and chown helped.
Under Ubuntu it will not save at all.

Fixed after 4.6.2 release in git master branch, To fix this bug in 4.6.2 ask mc maintainers of accordind distros. Or just try current master git branch which is available in nightly bilds.
