Hmmm.  I'm still not seeing anything like this on my end with current
CVS, so I'm going to need more information to fix this.  If nano's able
to display Unicode properly at all, then the locale should be set
properly, so I'm guessing that that isn't it.  What terminal emulator
are you using, and does switching to another one change anything?  I
test nano mostly under rxvt-unicode and uxterm, so if the problem occurs
under wither one of those, then that probably isn't the issue either.

Incidentally, the only time I've had the problem with the cursor's
extending past the end of the line while the Unicode was displayed
correctly, and with inserting text into the wrong place in the line
under similar circumstances, was when I was trying to make normal
ncurses display multibyte strings properly (and hence learning the hard
way that only ncursesw could do it).  Keeping that in mind, what's your
ncurses setup like?  Or are you using slang in this case?
