Description

It's really annoying to get/see/asnwer:

                     ┌───────────── Warning ──────────────┐
                     │ GNU Midnight Commander is already  │
                     │ running on this terminal           │
                     │ Subshell support will be disabled  │
                     │                                    │
                     │          [ OK ]  [ Quit ]          │
                     └────────────────────────────────────┘

as you try to run MC when you are already running it.

Please, just restore the running session without showing this dialog or make it an option.

Restoring the session is not acceptable - I'm using another instance of mc to do some peeks into other places (since Screens doesn't support alternate panels view). This way I can get third 'panel' and won't loose e.g. panel marks (from one or both panels if second instance exits in the same directory as it was started).

1) When you run two MC instances Ctrl + O becomes a mess - you never now in which MC you are now working.

2) For your case I asked making this feature request an option, so people like you could run multiple MC instances, and people like me could just return to MC without wasting excessive key strokes.

Replying to birdie:

1) When you run two MC instances Ctrl + O becomes a mess - you never now in which MC you are now working.

That's another problem - mc should disable EditShell and ShowCommandLine in this case.
