To reproduce, run:

  nano --ignore +11 README

and type: M-P M-P.  This toggles the displaying of whitespace, as it should.

Now type: <Esc> <Esc> M-P.  Instead of toggling whitespace, this enters the letter "p" into the buffer.  That is surely not what the user intended.

Now type: <Esc> M-P.  The cursor moves up one line, as if ^P was pressed (or the equivalent <Esc> <Esc> P).  Also this is unlikely to be what the user intended.

Expected behavior: whenever M-P is pressed, no matter after how many escapes, the function bound to M-P should be executed.
