I'm using the 4.6.1-4 package, and the option to case insensitive filesearch simply doesn't work.
The problem and a patch can be found here:
Plz. report it to the mc developers too.

I've tried out this bug, and with the mc-utf8 package from community, case sensitive search _works_.
Tried with filename and file content too. So maybe, the mc-utf8 packages should bcome the default mc package, if it works for non-utf8 users. What do you say ngaba?

Oops. Misread description... case _insensitive_ search doesn't work in mc-utf8 too.

This patch has *not* been merged upstream.

This is an upstream bug - seeing as it's minor, and we try to stay vanilla wherever possible, should we close this? Simo?
