    By viewing lossage, it emerges that when i press up-arrow, emacs sees
    ESC o A instead of ESC O A.

    This shoudl not have happened, because if you look at the
    function-key-map in the parent-mail, the function-key-map should have
    translated this ESC O A into 'up' before this key-combination could
    have ever reached key-translation-map. 

As soon as Emacs receives ESC O, key-translation-map goes to work.
function-key-map cannot go to work yet because Emacs has received only
part of the sequence that translates into the function key.
