Description

All the dialogs (mcedit's search, mkdir, copy/rename etc.) forget strings made of space, tab and newline. As long as it may be reasonable on file operations, it's really annoying in editor; I often search for ' \t', '\t ', ' \n', '\t\n' and ' ' when programming. Whitespaces are important not only in whitespace language, but also in python, fortran or Makefiles. mc shouldn't try to be smart and 'fix' my history, especially now when removing bogus entries is as easy as pressing del key.

I was convinced this is a regression, but indeed 4.6 behaves the same. So for the record I'm interested in this enhancement in mcedit only.
