Fixed in git, commit 8762e046, by setting 'spotlighted' back to FALSE only when in the main menu (and thus not when at the yes-no prompt or any other prompt).

To reproduce, run 'src/nano --ignore NEWS'.
Then type: M-R rap <Enter> xxx <Enter>
See that the first occurrence of "rap" is spotlighted.
Now type: M-X to toggle the help lines off.
See that the spotlight has disappeared.  Oops.

Expected behavior: toggling the help lines should not lose the spotlight, or at the very least it should show the cursor.

Problem exists since version 5.0, commit d8249917, when toggling the help lines in most menus was made possible.
