Since I moved to FreeBSD 7, I noticed that if I press Enter on
a file name in the Midnight Commander (which associates the
start of the proper program with the file name as parameter,
controlled by mc.ext file) that the program is sometimes started
2 or three times. This is especially annoying for video files
that then run multiple instances of mplayer, or image files
that then run multiple instances of xzgv -tz.

Any idea where this comes from? Never had this before...

Maybe it has something to do with the "subshell support" new to
the Midnight Commander, which often results in

        read (subshell_pty...): No such file or directory (2)

after crashing the MC and not running it anymore.

Or maybe it is due to to "sticky keys" on the USB stack? The
keyboard is (still) a Sun USB Type 6 keyboard which didn't have
any problems before. Additionally, it's not my fingers, I'm
a typist - learned on a real typewriter. :-)
