Re: [Nano-devel] [PATCH] bug #28994: [Request] enable search (^W) in hel

Due considerable much rewriting and reordering, the patch is not on
top of previous one. Specifically this patch adds the ability to
delete the temporary file/s generated (handled in do_help()), wraps
the help text as per the screen (handled in help_init()). One question
here: why don't we allow wraps greater than 74 *even* when screen can
accommodate it?

There is one problem with this patch. After applying this patch, one
can open another help screen by doing ^G, ^W and ^G. Should this help
option be disabled or it should allow this nested help? Currently it
is allowed but buggy: leads to errors in redisplaying the buffers on
screen or even segfault.
