I was used to midnight commander for simple operations with tarballs like viewing content of one file inside tarball. For some reason after updating to F16 this functionality stopped working. It just silently ignores my attempts to "enter" the tarball (or rpm). Removing configuration from ~/.config/mc doesn't help
