Hi Matt,

The bug you mention with re-searching at startup and seach history
should be fixed as of r4531.
I have also implemented the saved cursor position feature you
mentioend, which will be in nano 2.3.0.

I've created a test tarball for you or anyone interested in testing
out this new feature (or
the bugfix for that matter) at

Note that this version changes the location of the saved search file,
which it sounds like you
do use quite a bit, to ~/.nano/search_history.  I added a section to
the faq about this but if
you want to switch between nano versions you may want to check out that entry.

Thanks for using nano!
