Fixed in git, commit 3409cb2b, by unsetting NOREAD_MODE as soon as the files mentioned on the command line have been handled.

To reproduce, run:

src/nano --ignore --noread --multi somefifo

See that nothing has been read (even if 'somefifo' were an actual fifo or file).
Now type: ^R doc/f <Tab> <Enter>
See that the <Tab> found the 'doc/faq.html' file, and that its name is shown in the title bar, but it hasn't actually read the file.

Now... this has been this way for years, and no one complained, but... this is not how I expect things to work.  The --noread option should affect only the files mentioned on the command line, and should allow the user to load another file into another buffer, copy some part of it, and paste this into the 'somefifo' buffer, or whatever.
