Probably there is some name clash with some other tool, so somebody
decided that they want the MC to be called as "midc".

I asked the following question on linux related groups but no answer
yet... Can anybody in this groups help?
I telnet to my Linux from my Windows machine.
When I activate MC through the telnet window, everything looks almost
the same as being on the actual Linux computer.
However, the F keys do not function properly:
F10 acts like F9
F9 like F8
Is it the telnet client (QVT 4.2d) settings? Terminal emulation
choice? I played around with them without much success.
