If you set %TERM% to "cygwin", nano and vi begin working normally. I updated the installer to automatically set %TERM% so that nano works out of the box.

Fixed installer:

Ivanov created a working binary of nano 2.2.5 for Windows. Works on my machine.

I wrapped it in a simple MSI installer (automatically adds nano to PATH, etc.) for anyone who's interested.

C:\>unzip nano-2.2.6.zip
C:\>cd nano-2.2.6\
