My MC displays modification date time in very strange manner. Sometimes it displays date+year and sometimes it displays date+time. Unpredictable.

How to make it display something predictable?

enter image description here



timeformat_recent=%d.%m.%y %H:%M
timeformat_old=%d.%m.%y %H:%M

to [Misc] section of ini file didn't help.

It probably tried to copy the format used by ls (which displays the year for files older than 6 months), but didn't quite succeed. –  grawity May 27 '13 at 21:11
It displays the year for some recent files too... –  Dims May 27 '13 at 21:15
