Hmm.  Doesn't happen here.  This is probably because you are running an
older version of ncurses -- before 5.9, I believe?  Or at least before

I can reproduce it, though, when using the -K option.  But... is there

(Weirder is that when pressing Alt+PgUp or Alt+PgDn, nano will complain
about an "Unknown sequence" but will enter "3~" into the buffer.  Ouch.
