I never see this bug and I unable reproduce it. What terminal do you use?

comment:2 Changed 13 years ago by RomaHagen

hm.. strange. I tried with all the possible terminals: xterm, konsole, lxterminal, gnome-terminal and in Linux console. And I can always reproduce it. I tried on two machines. My distribution is openSuSE 11.4.

does ctrl-L (redraw) make it appear?

comment:4 Changed 13 years ago by RomaHagen

no, but it appears after pressing Tab (changing the panel), for example. Or, as I already said, after changing the current directory.

comment:5 Changed 13 years ago by ymarkovitch

I confirm the bug. Same situation: OpenSUSE 11.4, mc, any terminal. I have 5 OpenSUSE 11.4 installations, all get this bug. Extremely annoying, I've downgraded to mc 4.6.0.
