Thanks for confirming.  :)

Since then, the problem has been fixed properly by Lion Yang in this

If you unmask in your Gentoo install the "unstable" version of nano,
you will get 2.9.3, which has the fix (fixed since 2.9.0) -- not really
a fix, more of a workaround, but anyway, it prevents the problem.

I would say yes: the program should return the terminal to the state
it was in when the program started.
