Default mc core dump in root

hi all ...
I have a strange problem.
I use a lot mc. Work fine ...
but if i'm in root, when i want to run it, i recive a Segmentation fault (core dumped) error mess.

In other non-root users work perfectly.

Any idea ?

Sorry for my english.

Thanks

I dont' know what 'mc' is but if you run it with 'gdb' you can find the problem

I am unable to reproduce the problem.

Which options did you use?
# cd /usr/ports/misc/mc && showoptions

You can use gdb to trace the problem, but you will first need to recompile mc with debug flags:
# cd /usr/ports/misc/mc && make deinstall install -DWITH_DEBUG

Then use:
# gdb mc

In the gdb prompt type run.
