It depends of the configuration of your system and the applications you are using.
In ther terminfo entry we don't have the km entry, but we have rmm and smm. From
my view point an application should look first in km, and if km indicates
the system has a meta key, then use smm or rmm, but there are some applications
which seems use them (smm and rmm) without looking km. I had this problem
in debian with mutt, but I don't have this problem in other operating systems.
The solution is running 'tput rmm' before of mc, or you can remove smm and rmm
in the terminfo definition.

Maybe could be a good idea adding a command line switch for removing the 8bit-meta
