Fixed in git, commit f420f7c1, by moving the call of wredrawln() up into do_verbatim_input(), out of the error path, when 'count == 0'.

The offending commit is 6d828cf4: "move some code for overwriting verbatim feedback with --zero".  The problem is that the current code forces the bottom row of the edit window to overwrite the status bar also when there was an error during Verbatim/Unicode Input.

To reproduce, run:

src/nano --ignore --zero

Then type: M-V D 8 9 0 <Enter>
Result: there is no feedback, and nothing is entered into the buffer.

Without --zero, this will say "Invalid code", as it should.
