Bug#570481: vim: no cursor keys in insert mode (sql filetype)

Package: vim
Version: 2:7.2.330-1
Severity: normal

Hash: SHA1


In the sql filetype, cursor (arrow) keys left and right in insert mode
do nothing.  up and down still work, and when vim is not in insert mode
everything is normal.  Tested in KDE konsole and in text mode console.

Since vim -u NONE -U NONE disables cursor keys in insert mode in any
case, I can't follow this recommendation, but IIRC I haven't modified
/etc/vim/vimrc in anyway, and I have also renamed my ~/.vimrc.  Then the
bug can be reproduced by just :filetype plugin on and :set ft=sql.

Regards ( & thank you for maintaining vim :-)
