In both cases, delete the link that point to the file in read-only memory and copy the file itself to where the link was. After that you'll be able to edit the file.
That's the first thing I did, but it didn't help. It seems like path-wise it's looking in /usr/share.rom/ first.
Renaming the mc.ext file has no effect on the way that Midnight Commander treats extensions, so I'm pretty sure that it's going right to the /usr/share.rom/ directory first.
I did some extensive checking around (.profile and the different mc.sh files, etc) on where else it could be, but I couldn't find it...
