It seems that:

color red,red "^ *"

is broken in nano 1.3.2 with the Smart Home patch (not sure when the
breakage occurred).  The equivalent with a tab instead of a space seems to

The symptom is that not all of the beginning spaces on a line are
highlighted (usually only the first 3 or 4), and that indeed the highlight
is cursor-dependent, which seems to be very broken.  Depending on where the
cursor is placed, I can get the first 1 to 3 inclusive spaces on a line
highlighted, or the last space on a space only line.  Any other cursor
position turns off all of the highlighting on that line.

Configured with --enable-all on Red Hat Linux 9.
