Fixed in git, commit cb841de3, by forcing the 'statusblank' variable to 1 at the end of unbound_key().

To reproduce, run 'src/nano --ignore' and type: Alt+Home Alt+End Alt+Up Alt+Down.  If there is no audio feedback, for which of these keystrokes is the message "Unbound key" meant?

To not leave any possibility for confusion, the messages "Unbound key" and "Unknown sequence" should be wiped upon the next (valid) keystroke, with or without --quickblank.
