This can be reproduced as follows With current git (f6b396f):

1. Run

./nano --ignore --showcursor

2. Press ^R ^T to go to the file browser. The cursor is properly shown on the highlighted file.

3. Press ^W to go to the file search prompt inside the file browser.

4. Press ^C to cancel out of the file search prompt. The cursor is no longer shown on the highlighted file. Pressing ^L to refresh the screen will show the cursor again, however.
