Original submission:

When I invoke "Show directory sizes" from Command menu, the scanning
 cannot be interrupted. Ctrl-C, Ctrl-break, esc - notgnih work.

This can be especially annoying if you do it in root directory and 
you have mounted some slow network drive, large archive with 
millions of files in thousands of directories or anything else that 
will take ages (hours? days?) to scan. Ultimately, I'll have to 
switch to another terminal and kill mc.

I think the scanning should be interruptible.

Also, it might be nice to show some sort of progress window, telling
 which directory is scanned (a bit similar of the progress window 
showing the file which is now deleted when you delete some large 
directory structure)
