I'm using nano 2.2.6 with the option -c to see the current position in the text editor.

The problem is that the information blocks grows horizontally if for example the current line reaches the next digit but it shrinks if it looses a digit.

For example if you go from line 9 to 10 the block grows and if you go back from line 10 to 9 it shrinks. In my opinion the block shouldn't shrink but reserve the place with a whitespace. This means the block can only grow but not shrink. This will avoid a jumpy behavior if you are going fast trough a file.
