Does using Meta+Y (in most environments, that's the same as Alt+Y)
clear up matters? That should be the "toggle syntax coloring on/off"
command.  If it does, then I suspect that the syntax coloring is
redrawing something when it shouldn't need to.

Alternatively, you might try launching it with something like either

  $ TERM=vt100 nano somefile.txt


  $ TERM=dumb nano somefile.txt

If not, then there might be something else going on and I'd have to
do a bit more testing.
