This isn't a bug.  It just means that the termcap/terminfo entry doesn't
provide the right entries that allow the key sequences output by the
arrow keys to be bound to the motion commands you want.  You can do
this yourself; the easiest way to find out the key sequence output by
an arrow key is to use `cat -v'.
