Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
nano prior to 1.3.12 doesn't properly support Unicode, which causes issues with
FC3. (http://www.nano-editor.org/dist/v1.3/faq.html#5.3) You can workaround
this by changing your locale to a non-Unicode one.
FC6 (and RHEL5) have 1.3.12.
