Subject: nano: when suspended, clears the screen even though xterm alternate screen switching off
Date: Sun, 13 Jan 2008 21:27:44 +1100
Package: nano
Version: 2.0.7-1
Severity: normal

I have turned off the vastly evil alternate screen switching in xterm,
by turning on the XTerm.VT100.titeInhibit Xresource setting.
Unfortunately, this works for all programs other than nano, which
helpfully clears the screen before returning back to the shell upon
being backgrounded.

Is there a sane reason why this is done?  Can it be turned off?
