change mc unpacking behaviour

i noticed, when i unpack something in mc, it unpacks it first to /tmp/mc-username and then copies it to destination. Can this be changed? i have only ~5 GB free on my /

i'd prefer it to unpack directly to destination as this is slowing me down, i have to monitor /tmp/mc-username and destination directory and delete unpacked & copied files from /tmp/mc-username everytime i unpack archive bigger than amount of free space on /

any suggestion appreciated
