Terminal on OSX Lion and Nano

I use Nano as my editor of choice, having decided to be Switzerland in the vi/emacs wars. However, when I upgraded to OSX Lion recently, I found the cursor jumped all over the place when editing text. This is obviously suboptimal. Luckily, it’s easy to fix. Change xterm-256color to xterm-color in the settings.

Change this to xterm-color and it's fixed.

You may need to do this for every style of window using xterm-256color just to make sure, but that should be it.
