Are you saying that the behavior changes depending on if the buffer fits
into one window, i.e., in the case where it does the arrows move point
and otherwise scroll?

The first thing I'd check was see what `C-h k' says about pressing the
up/down arrows.  The expected answers would be that <up> is bound to
`previous-line' and <down> is bound to `next-line'.  What does it say
for you?
