How to exclude some pattern when doing a search in MC?

In Midnight Commander, is it possible to exclude some directories/patterns/... when doing search? (M-?) I'm specifically interested in skipping the .hg subdirectory.

In the "[Misc]" section of your ~/.mc/ini file, you can specify the directories you wish to skip in the "find_ignore_dirs" setting.

To specify multiple directories, use a colon (":") as the delimiter.
