I think a new 2.0.x release would be appropriate, given how this bug is a "only needs to burn you once" kind of thing... The next ubuntu release is going to nano 2.2, but that leaves all the other supported ubuntu releases subject to this bug (not to mention other distros, OSes, etc). Presumably everybody having their own patches against the same bug is a Bad Thing, yea?

Applied and credited in svn r4467, and will be in nano 2.2.2. If Ubuntu is not interested in going to 2.2 anytime soon, I can eventually make a new 2.0 release.

I've fixed a crash at save time when "set backup" is enabled and the user does not save to the default file location. The bug is not ubuntu specific, but I reported it there first:

I'm guessing this patch (also included below) will be included in the next ubuntu release, and it fixes a segfault at save time, so please apply upstream or fix the bug in some other fashion.

I consider this to be critical, as the first time it happened I lost a lot of information (not even a file), but I'll leave it to others to adjust the priority of this bug if necessary.

Thanks for your work on nano!
