Closing the window with mc leaves it in background consuming 100% CPU

I've compiled mc 4.7.4 on Nokia N900 (debian-based Maemo5 OS) with ncurses support. When you close the terminal (gnome-terminal based) with Midnight running in it, the mc process will remain in background, consuming 100% CPU.

I've connected to the running mc process with gdb, here's the backtrace:

Program received signal SIGINT, Interrupt.
0x400432f0 in _nc_wgetch () from /usr/lib/libncursesw.so.5
0x400432f0 <_nc_wgetch+28>: str r2, [r11, #-184]
(gdb) where
#0 0x400432f0 in _nc_wgetch () from /usr/lib/libncursesw.so.5
#1 0x40043cf0 in wgetch () from /usr/lib/libncursesw.so.5
#2 0x0007e7d8 in tty_lowlevel_getch () at tty-ncurses.c:242
#3 0x00096964 in get_key_code (no_delay=0) at key.c:1435
#4 0x00094c40 in getch_with_delay () at key.c:657
#5 0x000975e8 in tty_get_event (event=0xbeb6e33c, redo_event=0, block=1) at key.c:1684
#6 0x0001f804 in frontend_run_dlg (h=0x17a478) at dialog.c:1043
#7 0x0001f930 in run_dlg (h=0x17a478) at dialog.c:1075
#8 0x00072290 in create_panels_and_run_mc () at main.c:1716
#9 0x00072578 in do_nc () at main.c:1798
#10 0x00072c38 in main (argc=3, argv=0xbeb6e5a4) at main.c:2048

So, mc is still trying to read the keyboard, despite the fact that stdin has been already closed.

  • getch() returns -1
  • tty_lowlevel_getch() returns -1
  • get_key_code returns -1 as well

then in getch_with_delay() it gets this:

657 c = get_key_code (0);
658 if (c != -1)
659 break;
660 /* Failed -> wait 0.1 secs and try again */
661 try_channels (1);

so it calls getch() again and again, despite the fact that getch() returns EOF.

Indeed, looks like it. I've seen that bug before posting this one, but for some reason decided it's different. But now I see it is very similar, or identic.

How do I mark this bug as a duplicate of that one?
