Fixed in git, commit 4dcbd40c.

(<Shift+F11/F12> still enter "$" into the buffer on Eterm and Urxvt, but... then those terminals shouldn't have chosen such deviant escape sequences.)

To reproduce, run 'nano -raw' on an xterm or Xfce Terminal or similar, and type <Shift+F5>, <Shift+F6>, and so on, to <Shift+F12>.  See that each keystroke beeps and enters ";2~" into the buffer.

(On a Linux console, <Shift+F5>...<Shift+F8> beep and enter "~" into the buffer.  On Eterm and Urxvt it are <Shift+F1>...<Shift+F10> that enter "~", <Shift+F11/F12> enter "$".)

Expected behavior: when the escape sequence is unknown, nano should just say so and skip the crap that belongs to the sequence.  (That nano sees the crap as legitimate characters makes that the "Unknown sequence" message is not visible when --quick is used, because it gets wiped immediately.)
