This fixes the problem. Thanks.

It fixed the problem, but was not good enough: it created another.
Run for example:

    src/nano --ignore --auto --line  +4,-1 NEWS

and type: M-P <Enter>.  Note how line 5 consists of 13 spaces.
Now type: <Enter> ^C.  Note the number of characters: 105487.

Yeah, nice catch, although I am still a bit curious how you managed to find it. XD

Now type: M-U ^C.  Oww!  The thirteen spaces are gone.  But the
file size has been reduced by just one.  Incorrect.  The spaces
should have remained.

Attached patch solves the issue in a better way.

I have tested pure spaces, pure tabs and mixed spaces and tabs with auto indent on and off, breaking a line at the beginning, in the middle and at the end. In all cases, the original issue no longer exists.
