The feedback gets wiped by the wipe_statusbar() call in do_prompt()...  It is meant to clear the prompt bar, but kills any feedback that a function might have given.

Well, the only remaining function in the Seacrch menu is M-J (Full Justify), and it really shouldn't be there.  So... instead of fixing this feedback problem, maybe it's time to create the separate Tools menu.

Typing ^W M-J never gives any feedback.  That is: also when not in view mode.  Or rather: the feedback it gives gets wiped.

To reproduce, run:

  src/nano --ignore --view README

Then type: ^W M-J.

Result: nothing happens, and nothing is shown on the status bar.

Now type M-J (without the ^W).  Result: "[ Key is invalid in view mode ]" is shown on the status bar.

Expected behavior: ^W M-J should at least show the same message.  Maybe it should not even exit from the Search prompt.
