Package: nano
Version: 1.2.3-1
Severity: normal
File: /usr/bin/nano

When trying to open a file with nano from the commandline, where you have no
permission to read the file, nano doesn't give a warning about this (where nano
from woody does).
I found this bug running 'nano /etc/lilo.conf' as normal user: nano opened an
empty screen and only warned when trying to save the file, whereas nano from 
opens an empty screen, but first gives the warning:
"[ Permission denied: /etc/lilo.conf ]"
When opening non-readable files from within nano I do get a warning message.
