A config option to show the Drive Letter (H: for example) before the UNC network path to the mapped drive, which can get rather long in some cases.  The entry for the mapped drive entry should then look similar to a physical device like C:

I know there is a Windows registry key to ShowDriveLettersFirst for use with Windows Explorer, but setting this key to value of 4 does not seem to affect MC behavior.   I am using Windows 7.  Log off and log on, or restart the computer to apply.
