mc frequently and it has been running perfectly for years. A while ago (weeks?)
mc seems to get confused by the mouse wheel and prints what seem to be ANSI Escape sequences on the screen similar to these:
I cannot find any ANSI sequences with 3 numbers and M though.
97 seems to mean
roll up and
96 seems to mean
roll down. The other numbers are a mystery.
Also strange is that this fault is not predictable and starts at any time while using
mc. And, to make it even stranger: I can have one
mc open in a terminal, which is working ok, and, in another terminal, an
mc which fails.
The last seems to indicate that the fault isn't a common factor (like maybe
gpm or so).
I'm using Slackware 14.2, urxvt (v9.22), and a m$ optical mouse. Anyone have an idea where to look? I also ran
rxvt and, in comparison,
urxvt seems somehat sluggish scrolling.
