Nano 2.4.0 problem

Yes, of course I was going to file a bug, or at least I was thinking about
it.  It's definitely a severe issue if Nano can't accept files on the
command line.  However, that doesn't solve my immediate problem.  I still
need some kind of decent editor.  I'm liking NE more and more, so that's
probably going to be my choice.  Besides, the ne package is much smaller
than the nano package.  Even if Nano 2.4.1 works correctly, 2.4.0 and up
still have the problem of repeating everything on the screen when a new line
is entered and I haven't been able to determine why, so filing a bug still
wouldn't solve that problem.
