After starting in virtual terminal program Konsole(KDE 4.8.1) MC hangs for about 5 min.
After waiting it is works fine. When I close the program there is a message "No protocol specified". Running as root or ordinary user has same error.

"Also, if you have the DISPLAY environment variable set, but the X server is unreachable (e.g. it's firewalled), this can also cause a delay at startup. Unset DISPLAY to see if that's the case. "

clearing $DISPLAY as well $WINDIWID did not help
but this message - "No protocol specified" - now it disappeared.
mc still hangs on startup

is it possible to set on verbose logging? for debugging purpose.
