Ticket #329 (new defect)
mc has high memory footprint when working with archives through VFS

When user works with archives, the archive is unpacked to /tmp. /tmp is usually a virtual filesystem held in memory. As the archive can be large, the memory footprint can rise quite high. This also blocks memory pages for other applications forcing system to swap.
This issue was reported on OpenSolaris? but I see it as general issue.
