I used to run mm. I don't submit bug reports because i'm lazy
Now i don't run it because 2.6 doesn't look very usable and i
don't want to test two development versions. Also sometimes is
handy to have a stable version around when something goes wrong
(i.e. filesystem corruption after a crash or power failure).

I had my filesystem trashed with 2.6 so i'm more carefull now.

the xterm you want to type in.
