When in the bottom two help lines some F-keys are listed, clicking on them does not execute the function they advertise.

To reproduce: put "bind ^Y nextword main" and "bind ^V prevword main" in your .nanorc, start nano with the NEWS file, for example, enable mouse support (M-M), click in the center of the screen to place the cursor so it can move in every direction, and then click on F8 (Next Page). It does a cursor up. Then click on F7 (Prev Page). It does the equivalent of ^O.

This is both in SVN and with my distro's old nano-2.2.2. Seeing this in X on a Gnome terminal and on an xterm.
