I've been using mc for ~20 years, and I've never heard of, needed, or wanted to scroll the filelist by "dragging" the mouse. The scrollwheel works fine.
TBH I primarily just use the keyboard though, that's what page up and page down keys are for, is it not?

Thanks for reply!)
May be this answer?
Now tested. Under xfce all works good. Issue only under Trinity DE(KDE3 successor)

No, not solved, on xfce, mc scrolling by pulling mouse + RMB pressed working only downside, upside not.

I'm on 4.8.27 on Slackware.
RMB and drag selects for me. Though MC has way more config options than I need.
It will does scroll if I select files higher or lower than the visible window but for plain scrolling I use mouse wheel or page up/down like steve_v. 

scrolling by pulling mouse + LMB pressed works only downways, not upways. is the behavior I get.
