Through Konsole, the Up, Down, Left, Right keys work properly, but through 
psql the keystrokes seem to be wrong: 
instead of up (for scrolling in the internel buffer) it appears  ^[[A   
Down  ^[[B
Right ^[[C
Left  ^[[D
Back_del  (ok)
Forward_del ^[[3~

It happened when I upgraded Mandrake from 7.1 to 7.2 (Linux 2.2.17-21mdksmp 
i686), postgresql 7.0.2 from Mandrake RPM.
Where should I look at?  I tried the following keyboard settings:
Linux console, xterm, vt100, vt420pc
but no-one works properly.

thanks!
