Thanks, but this didn't change anything at all.

I did and do.

I "su" in a konsole to 'root' whenever a program asks for
root-privileges (mc, aptitude, backintime to name only 3 of the most
important ones) and according to the prompt then, I am in the
root-directory not my home anymore. 

But I solved the problem in the meantime and it cost me a lot of sweat
ans swearing.
Some idiotic programmer has had the splendid idea to add in my
~/username/.config/mc/mc.ini Following:
# escape=h"
# f1=\\e[M i*\\e[M#i*
# backtab=\\e[Z
# kpslash=Y0\\e[M#Y0
wihout the leading #. And only there, nowhere else! That moron.

Thanks for your effort and kind regards.
