A plain diff between keyboard and mouse output shows:

 < fancy_viewer.c:653:open outer: (null)

I should also add that Shift+F10 works as expected for folders and on
messages in list etc.



I don't know why, but first C programs tend to look a lot worse than
first programs in any other language (maybe except for fortran, but then
I suspect all fortran programs look like `firsts')
