I'm sure it does, partman sees the drive as well.  partman just
doesn't notice it has free space.

I didn't take the hours it would take me to redo the install again to
do that.  I should.

nano is (or claims to be) a general purpous editor.  How should it
know it's not being called from a normal shell?  I don't think busybox
is involved at this point, the error is in the program calling nano
that doesn't expect its child to suspend itself.  Immediatly sending
the child a SIGCONT in this case would be reasonable.

So the question is which package is calling nano?

With Microsoft, failure is not an option.  It is a standard feature.
