I have a window viewer opened next to MC. I have configured MC to send the file name to the viewer on Enter or F3. MC flickers for a split second (goes to console and back, sort of) each time I view an image. This issue can also be reproduced with the following mc.ext:


View=cat %f > /dev/null&

Then find a bigger .jpg, and hit F3. With smaller .jpg there seems to be no issue.

I did some further testing. If I enable "Fast dir reload," then with Enter there is no flickering in the majority of cases (in some 5% it still happens though). However, with F3 there is still flickering every single time.
