Well, if they're being passed through to the application, that's good in a
sense--at least the terminal emulator isn't intercepting them.  To see
what sequence you need to capture, just do

  cat > /dev/null

then press C-v (which will quote the leading escape character) and press
C-Up (or any other key you want to try).  When I do it with xterm, I see
something like this:

  $ cat > /dev/null

The "^[" represents the escape character (as you probably know; I'm just
being completist).  Use C-d to stop cat and get back to your shell.
