Ignoring pastes in help viewer and file browser was done in commit a78da18a, ignoring all but the first character at a yes-no prompt is done in commit e3f6638a.

I didn't like the "Unbound key" message that appeared when pasting into viewer or browser (with your patch), so I've implemented the paste suppression differently, in commit a78da18a.  I'm still thinking about what to do at yesno prompts.

I'm not sure about this one.  I can imagine some user not having a keyboard layout with Latin letters and not knowing how to type Y or N or A, and resorting to pasting in the relevant letter from some file.  Nano should at least allow pasting in the English letters for Yes, No, and All (and probably also the local ones) at the yes-no prompt.

Input prompts are now protected from pastes that contain linefeeds, but other menus aren't and execute each character as a possible command. Pasting in help menu might close it and dump to the edit buffer. Pasting in yesno prompt can choose the wrong option. And pasting to the browser can close it and dump to the filename prompt.

This fixes all three cases by ignoring bracketed pastes and beeping.
