    77I firmly disagree with this change. In my opinion, emitting garbage characters is acceptable (although undesired), whereas hanging for many seconds, making the user believe that mc has totally stopped working is not acceptable. I strongly recommend that change to be reverted.

    9 Even if you decide not to revert that change, it should further be improved to recognize characters that can't be part of escape characters (e.g. newline, space(?), backspace, the escape character itself) and immediately synchronize: drop the unrecognized sequence and immediately process that new character or new valid escape sequence. That way, when you press numpad 5 followed by for example the Up arrow or Enter, mc would immediately process the Up or the Enter action.

    1111Nevertheless, in addition to this change, mc should really recognize the escape sequence of numpad 5 and know that it requires no action to be taken.
