No problem.

Upgrading nano (e.g. making it use its own version of the function
that's broken in this glibc) might be possible, but it wouldn't be much
help, since nano isn't the only program affected by the issue.  Besides,
the issue isn't in the official version of glibc 2.3.3.  If it were, I'd
be inclined to work around it.  (In fact, nano did work around a
crashing bug in the official version of glibc 2.1.3 for a while.)  The
issue is caused by one of the patches Suse applied to glibc 2.3.3 (and
several later versions).  This makes it their problem, since I have no
control over glibc and/or who patches it.

I'd recommend either (a) upgrading to Suse 10,1, since the issue is
fixed there, or (b) updating your Suse 9 installation to fix the issue
(assuming Suse has an update to 9.x to fix this problem; I'm guessing
you'll have to talk to someone associated with Suse to figure out the
details).  Sorry I can't be of more help here...
