$ mkdir xxx 
$ dd if=/dev/zero of=xxx/yyy bs=1000000 count=1
1+0 records in
1+0 records out
1000000 bytes (1.0 MB) copied, 0.000880908 s, 1.1 GB/s
$ ln xxx/yyy xxx/zzz
$ du xxx
988K	xxx

When press Ctrl-space on xxx directory, MC shows 2000000 as directory size.

MC should recognize hardlinks and shouldn't summarize size of hardlinks as though they are independent files.

What to do if not all the hard links are from under the Ctrl-spaced directory?

What if multiple directories are being Ctrl-spaced and one link is under one, the other link is under the other?

$ mkdir aaa bbb
$ dd if=/dev/zero of=aaa/xxx bs=1000000 count=1
$ ln aaa/xxx bbb/yyy
$ du aaa
984	aaa
$ du bbb
984	bbb
$ du aaa bbb
984	aaa
4	bbb

Is the latter one okay for us too, if the user tags multiple files and then presses Ctrl-space? I don't like it, even though I have to admit I have no idea what to do.
