A problem was found in the cons.saver program by Maurycy Prodeus. The
cons.saver program is a screensaver for the console that is included
in the mc package. cons.saver does not check if it is started with a
valid stdout, which combined with a bug in its check to see if its
argument is a tty (it forgets to close the file-descriptor after
opening the supposed tty), causes it to write a NULL character to the
file given as its parameter.
Update the affected gmc, mc and / or mcserv packages.
