Linux Mint 18.3 completely hangs in Midnight C…

Linux Mint 18.3 completely hangs in Midnight Commander when pressing user menu:

Whenever I press F2 for the user menu in Midnight Commander (MC) the PC freezes completely, hangs for about 10 seconds (nothing works, keyboard, mouse, etc) and resumes once the menu shows on screen. I’ve tried searching only a bit but couldn’t find anything useful.

The same thing happens if I try to open the folder shortcuts (Ctrl + ).

Also, does anyone know how I can start a command in a separate terminal in MC, similar to the way you could do it in Far Manager on Windows (shift + enter) ? I’m a recent convert from Windows 10, trying to get the hang of things in Mint 18.03 🙂
