This feature doesn't work for me under Mac OS 10.15.7
MC behaves as it was before this feature was implemented. When you type a command in the panel then switch to subshell the typed command is not carried over to the subshell and vice versa.

GNU Midnight Commander 4.8.26
Built with GLib 2.66.4
Built with S-Lang 2.3.2 with terminfo database
With builtin Editor
With subshell support as default
With support for background operations
With mouse support on xterm
With internationalization support
With multiple codepages support
Virtual File Systems:
 cpiofs, tarfs, sfs, extfs, ftpfs, sftpfs, fish
Data types:
 char: 8; int: 32; long: 64; void *: 64; size_t: 64; off_t: 64;

Same version of mc and same version of bash running in the same terminal (kitty) works perfect under Linux.

I don't know if the problem is related but every time I run command in the panel I see it duplicated when I switch to subshell. For example:

> ls
> ls
file1 file2 file3

Another observation which may be related or not. It looks like MC corrupts my PROMPT_COMMAND.

Before starting MC my prompt command is something like:


When MC is running the PROMPT_COMMAND is:

command1;command2;command3  pwd>&8;kill -STOP $$
