It sounds odd, never heard of that problem before. Maybe one

I saw the same thing on my Vaio with 8.2.

The problem lies in the environment variables set to define the shell prompts - mine looked like this

PS1='\[\e]2;\u@\h:$(ppwd)\007\e]1;\h\007\]\u@\h:\w> '

which displays fine in Bash, but confuses the hell out of mc ;-)

Edit /etc/bash.bashrc and search for "_t" or, better, override the default in your ~/.bashrc by adding a line like this ..

export PS1='\u@\h:\w> '
