Thanks for the info, but that's actually how they're supposed to work. 
This is (a) so that you can hit a control character sequence, and then
move the cursor without letting go of the Control key, which some people
find useful; and (b) because I figure that nano should work the same way
under both X terminals and the console, and I have yet to find a console
that can distinguish between [arrow key] and Ctrl-[arrow key].  I do
wish that wasn't the case...

And, as it turns out, under KDE's konsole, which uses the same escape
sequences for Ctrl-[arrow key], but doesn't seem to generate anything
for Shift-[arrow key].  They may also work under gnome-terminal, since
it uses the same underlying library as Xfce's Terminal, but I haven't
tested it because I'd have to build all of GNOME before I could.
