#11643 new bug

[Terminal] mouse doesn't work in mc

This is hrev48528.

To be precise it works the first time you click a menu but menu items in this menu don't react on clicks. IIRC, it used to work at some point in the past. Package is available in HaikuPorts: pkgman install mc

"at some point in the past" is a bit vague :) I suspect the upgrade from ncurses 5.5 to 5.9 when we moved to package management could be a problem.

ncurses 5.9 was released in 2011, and the ncurses project is providing patches with bugfixes since then. The patchset has grown to 1MB over time. I tried building ncurses with it applied but one of the tools used during the build enters an infinite loop.

We will probably need to find which version of ncurses made these problem happen first (somewhere between 5.5 and 5.9) and either revert to the last working version, or find the issue there and fix it in the latest.

It used to work like 2-3 years ago :)
