To reproduce, put something like "crap hoopla" in an included syntax file, for example c.nanorc. Then run nano, see the notification on the status bar, exit from nano, and see what it reports:

Error in [...]: Command "crap" not allowed in included file

This gives the impression as if "crap" in itself is a valid command, just not in an included file. :|

Expected behavior: nano should of course say that "crap" is an unknown command, no matter whether in an included file or in a main nanorc file.
