Both things are "right", it might be good to have both behaviors available.
I guess those using the arrow keys more expect the new behaviour.

In general, C-n/C-p should do exactly the same thing as the arrow keys.

The context of this discussion AFAIK, is with regard to Kim's
display-time word-wrapping patch.  The typical situation where you would
want display-time word-wrapping is when you're editing text where
there's one newline per paragraph.  When editing such text, "visual"
line-movement becomes more or less a necessity for normal editing, and
clearly we want C-n/C-p to be usable for normal editing.

Ok, I agree, but there are also circumstances when you want to go to the next buffer line.
