Here and there an unbound key beeps, in the help viewer it does nothing at all, and in the main menu it displays "Unknown Command". The latter always makes me look in surprise: "What did I hit?" So it would be nice if the "Unknown Command" message also mentioned the key combo that was struck. And when the statusbar is in use by a prompt and a message cannot be displayed, then at least nano should beep, like in the Serch/Whereis menu.
