Fixed in git, commit 541a2dbc, by conditionalizing the printing of undo/redo messages on the ZERO flag not being set.

To see what I mean, run:

src/nano --ignore --zero --soft NEWS

Then type: <Ctrl+Shift+Right> M-6, and the hold down ^U until you've filled a few rows.  Then hold down M-U.  See that on the bottom row "Undid paste" flickers.  This is distracting and unneeded.  Option --zero is about not showing any unneeded feedback or interface.  (Now hold down M-E.  See that "Redid paste" flickers on the bottom row.)
