Bug#390151: vim-ruby doesn't support cursor arrows in insert mode

Package: vim-ruby
Version: 1:7.0-094+1
Severity: normal


Since vim7 coming out, seems that the cursor arrows key works strange. I
have no problem in command mode, but in insert mode they spit me out
this chars:

A for the up key
B for the down key
C for the right key
D for the left key

instead of moving the cursor.

I always test this with "vim -u NONE" start command. I tested different
flavor of LANG variables (C, en_US...), but no luck.

I also tested with xterm (I usually use aterm, and it has rxvt term
style), also without any luck.

This problem seems relative just at the vim-ruby package. The "normal"
vim doesn't has this problem.

Thank you.
