Strange.  Do Ctrl+Left and Ctrl+Right work?  Do they jump from
word to word?

If not, do you maybe have rebindings in your nanorc file?

Anyway, try running 'src/nano --ignore testfile' and then type:
Alt+V <Left> <Space> Alt+V <Right> <Enter>
Alt+V <Ctrl+Left> <Space> Alt+V <Ctrl+Right> <Enter>
Alt+V <Shift+Ctrl+Left> <Space> Alt+V <Shift+Ctrl+Right> <Enter>
^O <Enter> ^X

Then insert the contents of that testfile into your answer.

If things work as they should, all three lines should be the same --
however strange that may seem.
