    to the lock file -- a simple null_at() would not initialize the
  * src/files.c (do_lockfile): Make sure that 'lockprog' and

  * doc/man/nanorc.5: Improve the indentation of some lists.
  * doc/man/nanorc.5, doc/texinfo/nano.texi: Remove the mistaken
    square brackets around the arguments of "header" and "magic" --

  - -enable-nanorc.

  * src/search.c: Place some comments better and unwrap some lines.
  * src/chars.c (move_mbleft): Start looking for a multibyte char
    not at the start of the string, but only as far back as such a
    char can possibly be. Change suggested by Mark Majeres.
  * src/search.c (findnextstr): Step backward or forward not simply
    one byte but one character (possibly multibyte).
  * src/winio.c (edit_redraw): Do not center the current line when
