[Nano-devel] Weirdness on SUN

hi there,

i have noticed that on SUN machines (sparcv9-sun-solaris2.8), nano-1.2.1 seems
to add extra space characters on the screen when typing at the beginning of a
line; but the saved file is OK.

i will give a walking example, showing whats on the screen and what is saved.

- start a blank file, and type the following
this is a file

- then go to the beginning of the line and start typing any key, here i press
the `a' key 10 times:

aaaaaaaaaa          this is a file

aaaaaaaaaathis is a file

ON SCREEN there is a cursor just after the set of a's and one also before the
`t' in `this'

This does not happen on GNU/Linux.

To win just once against the odds
And once be smiled on by the Gods
To race with speed along the track
Break the tape and not look back
To never have considered losing
As if to win is by your choosing
Bare you soul for all to find
An honest heart and an open mind
   -- Saw Doctors, "To Win Just Once"
