Okay.  Then please start commenting out groups of settings in your
~/.nanorc file until you find the setting that triggers the bug.

Because even with your settings, I cannot reproduce the problem.

Also be sure to first move /etc/nanorc somewhere else, so that any
settings in that file do not interfere.

It would have been better not to use 'sort' -- the order matters
sometimes, like for the 'color' commands: surely they come after
the 'syntax' commands.

> bind M-. runmacro all

(These functions only exist in the main menu, so it would be better
to use 'main' instead of 'all'.)

> bind ^S " all

This must be a pasting error, because I know you ought to have
  bind ^S "^[" all
there instead, with ^[ a literal ESC character.

Could you attach a gzipped version of your .nanorc file, stripped
from comment lines, so we can be sure that it doesn't get modified
in any way in transit.

(Wow.  There really are people who prefer the half-screen scrolling? :) )

And when you switch the terminal back to the default tab size of 8?
Does the problem then still occur?

Yes, -I and --ignore are equivalent.  See the man page.
