Will be fixed (using Brand's idea) after bug #54659 is pushed to master, as it becomes more pressing then.

To reproduce, add the follwowing line at the end of your ~/.nanorc:

bind M-% nextword main

Then run 'src/nano +9 README' on a VT, and type <Shift+Alt+%> a few times.  See that instead of just jumping from word to word (as it does when run on a terminal emulator), the words get highlighted/selected.

This is understandable, seeing how the "cheating code" works that gets the state of the keyboard modifier keys, but it is unexpected.

(Original and indirect report by Brand Huntsman in https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/nano-devel/2019-12/msg00008.html.)
