To reproduce, run:

src/nano --ignore --view --locking /etc/issue

See that it says "[ Directory '/etc' is not writable ]" on the status bar.

This warning comes from trying to write a lock file to /etc, but when using --view, nano should not even try to write a locking file, as a lock file should have the meaning that someone is /editing/ the corrsesponding file.
