Description

Host: Windows 7 Professional Guest: Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 ver: VirtualBox v3.1.2

Console only Guest having serious graphic errors in mc, basicly bugged menu line on top. Whole screen having issues everytime after a file edit/view-ed. Tested with 3 diffrent vga option in /boot/grub/menu.lst.

/boot/grub/menu.lst

kernel    /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.26-2-686 root=/dev/hda1 ro quiet vga=0x0318

Could avoid the graphical mess, after changing the default editor from mcedit to something else (nano/vim).
