GPM crash report


I originally report a problem to MC, but it seems it is GPM issue:

I also propose patch to GPM that fixes this problem.

May be that this could help. This problem arises when I upgraded to 
Slackware 10.2.

Acconding to further analysis, I have found a fix inside liblow.c
I absolutelly don't know why mc passes here NULL. May be that new glibc 
is more sensitive to NULL than old one. (mc -d is also workaround, but 
this don't kill mouse.)

/* do we really need this check ? */
if(option.consolename==NULL) goto err;
if(tty==NULL) goto err;
|| !isdigit(tty[strlen(option.consolename)-1])) {
gpm_report(GPM_PR_ERR,"strncmp/isdigit/option.consolename failed");
goto err;
