Midnight Commander: bug report and patch

Hi, all -

I tried reporting this bug in Launchpad more about a week back, and
never got any response. Since it's a pretty big one (zip file contents
not showing up), I figured I'd send it here; hopefully, someone finds it

The problem was caused by the regex in "/usr/share/mc/extfs/uzip"
failing to parse the output of '/usr/bin/unzip -qq -v'. As a result, the
subsequent code that processes the return from that regex also fails.

Please take a look at the diff file for the fix (tested on ~20 random
zip files.)

Best regards,
