To reproduce, run on an 80-column terminal:

src/nano --ignore --soft --at --line  +90,440  doc/faq.html

Then type <Alt+Up> until the cursor is on the bottom row of the edit window.  Then type: x.  See that the screen scrolls half a screen to get the cursor back on screen, even though smooth scrolling is in effect (the default) and scrolling just one row would been enough.

Expected behavior: also when typing text in softwrap mode, the screen should scroll the minimum amount possible to keep the cursor onscreen.
