Ah ha!  I have been running nano from a subdirectory of the operating
directory I chose.  At the code handling option 'o' in nano.c:main(), the
check_operating_dir() returns 0 since . is within the operating directory,
so the chdir() doesn't happen.

There is a new patch at that
fixes this problem and some others.  (operatingdir keyword in the nanorc
didn't chdir(), and an operating directory of / was incorrectly treated
like a non-existant operating dir.)

The attached patch, relative between quote32 and quote33, shows what I
changed, and nearly applies to nano CVS.
