Has something changed in the Arch Installation?

I've seem to run across a few things when I install Arch now.  I've installed Arch many times on the exact same computer with the exact same hardware but I'm experiencing some issues. I always use the FTP install. 

First, I have no colors anymore when I edit anything in nano (after the installation).  Why is that?  All i have is a completely fresh install, but no colors.  That never used to happen.  I haven't changed anything. 

Second, even though I select during the install which mirror i would like to keep as my 1st mirror, pacman -Syu will not work.  I have to go into into the mirrorlist file and uncomment a mirror.  Now that is not a problem at all, but why has that changed? 

On top of those things, I have problems now getting GDM to load my xfce4 session, and even without GDM, I can only load xfce4 thru the root login, not my own, and when I install ttf-ms-fonts, i get a error that says the package has different permissions than the /tmp directory, which has never happened before.  I think the GDM thing is also a permissions problem for some reason. 

But why oh why has Arch changed on me?!  Help!

Re: Has something changed in the Arch Installation?

Nano syntax highlighting is now stored in /usr/share/nano.

I added the following lines to /etc/nanorc:

## Arch PKGBUILD
include "/usr/share/nano/pkgbuild.nanorc"

## Syntax highlighting in xorg.conf
include "/usr/share/nano/xorg.nanorc"

## Generic conf/rc/sh file syntax highlighting
include "/usr/share/nano/conf.nanorc"

Here are the 3 Arch files I created:

cat /usr/share/nano/conf.nanorc
# Generic conf/rc/sh file syntax highlighting
#############################################
syntax "conf/rc/sh" "conf$|rc$|sh$"
color white ".+"
color green "^#.*"
