I think there is a bug (or I have a strange configuration) with nano, it 
doesnt appear to be in the known bugs list.  When I edit a document 
(seemingly with formatting (i have compiled with color), some lines if I use 
the backspace key, do not get re-drawn properly.  I looked in the nano cvs 
log and see that no changes have been made to colour.c since the 1.1.12 
release so I assume its not fixed yet.

If I am in a freebsd console, it just doesnt move all the characters 
backwards, if I try it from under konquerer, it displays numbers to the right 
of the cursor. An example of this is pasted below. If you scroll to the 
bottom of the window pasted at the end of this email you will see a series of 
numbers where the code should be.

The only other reason I could think it is doing this are the environment 
settings, what should TERM be set to for example? I could not see any info on 
this in the FAQ. If I set my terminal to vt100 I only get bold, and it works 
fine, if i set my terminal to xterm (under KDE) it still shows the numerical
