4.7.3: "copy directory to another pane which already has same-named directory" behavior has changed

Description

With mc-4.7.3:

Here's the setup:

Left pane displays a directory with "inc" and "lib" subdirs.
Right one displays another directory which also has "inc" and "lib" subdirs.

If I copy "lib" dir from left pane to right, it does not overwrite files in right's page lib subdir, but rather creates lib/lib.

This is a change in behaviour: 4.7.2 wasn't doing that. It was overwriting files in right lib/*

If I select both "lib" and "inc" and copy them both, copy doesn't create lib/lib and inc/inc subdirs, but tries to overwrite corresponding files in target subdirs.

IOW: copying a directory alone works differently than when you copy it along with a few more selected dirs (or files).This is inconsistent.

(For the record: I do this kind of copies a lot when I copy modified source file(s) to a scratch build tree for testing).

Can the old, consistent behavior be re-instated?
