Subject: nano: directories open new buffers
Date: Tue, 20 Oct 2009 12:27:08 +0800
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: nano
Version: 2.1.11-1
Severity: minor

If I run this command, then I get one file opened and 3 "New Buffer"s.
It seems a bit silly that directories create new buffers. I think that
nano should ignore any directories listed on the command line.

echo foo > foo ; mkdir bar baz bloooooop ; nano foo bar baz bloooooop ; rm -rf foo mkdir bar baz bloooooop
