(Another good thing is that it now matches what the status bar says upon opening a file and upon typing ^S.)

Yeah, I agree.  At first I thought it would affect the output of ^C too, but that is a different mechanism.

Fixed in git, commit 3a65c0d1.

It includes the empty line at end of file. Type a character without final newline enabled and it still displays 1 line. With final newline enabled it changes to 2 lines after typing a character.

I think it should only ignore the last line if empty, regardless of the final newline setting. wc will report one fewer lines for non-posix files, but nano should display what the user can "see".

To reproduce, run 'nano --ignore' and type M-D.  It says:

  [ Words: 0  Lines: 1  Chars: 0 ]

This is wrong.  There is zero text there and no newline character; according to POSIX and to 'wc', the file consists of zero lines.

Expected behavior: M-D should give the same answer as 'wc'.
