small omission in the instruction for the extfs installation:

This bugzilla also contains an extfs module which can be used in
replacement of the mc internal utar handling of tar files which does
not have the limitation to 100 characters and according to my short
test also preserves the time stamps upon extraction.

In order to use this replacement for the logged in user:
1) store the untar attachment (it is a shell script) from the
mentioned bugzilla as ~/.local/share/mc/extfs.d/untar
and make it executable:
chmod a+x ~/.local/share/mc/extfs.d/untar

2) if you do not yet have the file ~/.config/mc/mc.ext
copy /etc/mc/mc.ext to ~/.config/mc/mc.ext

3) in the file ~/.config/mc/mc.ext
replace all occurrences of "utar" by "untar"

4) restart mc
