Fixed in git, commit dac58bb6, by not wiping the status bar (or by scheduling a refresh of the edit window) when there is just one row.

The offending commit is f7d5a82a: "wipe the status bar before searching again (M-W / M-Q)".

That covers M-W/M-Q, but not yet the initial ^W.

To reproduce, make an xterm window of one row, and run 'src/nano --ignore THANKS'.  Then type: ^W a <Enter>.  See that the cursor sits somewhere in a seemingly blank line.  Now type M-W three times.  The cursor jumps to other places in the blank line.  Type M-W again.  Now the cursor sits on the first "a" of "Translations".  Type M-W again.  The cursor now sits where the second "a" was, but the line is now blank.  :|

Bug exists in this form since version 4.4.  Before that, only after the initial ^W the line would be blank.
