[Nano-devel] bug report

I'm using 1.0.8 and am a bit puzzled as to the behavior I'm seeing when
moving the cursor to the left with the arrow key or backspacing.  It moves
along just fine for a while then skips 5 or 6 columns.  If I'm
backspacing, the 5 or 6 characters that were skipped are still shown on
the screen.  If I continue to backspace to the left, they disappear after
the rest of the line is deleted.

To show you where this happens I take the following lines:

0         1         2         3

and start with the cursor at the end of the first line and hold down the
backspace key.  This is what I get after deleting part of the line:

01234567 901234
0         1         2         3

That "901234" should not be there; I backspaced right through it.

This is on a RedHat 7.1 i686 system.  I tried using both a binary
I downloaded and compiling the source myself, but I get the same behavior.
I can use Pico on the same system without any problems.
I also run Debian testing on another computer and I don't have any
problems with using Nano on that.

I hope this information helps.  I really like Nano but this backspace bug
is annoying.  It's forcing me to use Pico (on RedHat) at work and Nano
(on Debian) at home.  I don't think it's on the bug list but I apologize
if I missed it and this email is redundant.  Keep up the good work.
