Hi John,

Are you setting nowrap in your .nanorc, or using the -w/--nowrap arguments on the command line? By default nano does wrap lines... If you're using these options and still seeing this behavior that does sound like a bug.

Compiled options: --disable-wrapping-as-root --enable-color --enable-extra --enable-multibuffer --enable-nanorc --enable-utf8

If i paste for example RSA key it breaks the key into three lines:

Also it breaks scripts this way :( Really annoying, because i use nano everywhere.
