System: NetBSD WintelKiller 1.4K NetBSD 1.4K (WintelKiller) #157: Sun Aug 22 18:35:28 MEST 1999 thilo@WintelKiller:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/WintelKiller i386

I noticed a strange behaviour of cursorkeys when logged in via rlogin,
it does not happen when I'm using telnet or secure shell:
cursorkeys don't work probably in vi: Some keypresses work normaly
but others seems to insert other keys into the input stream.
I don't know, maybe the ESC character gets eaten?

I can reproduce the problem on both i368 and arm32, localhost and
via net.

have rlogind enabled and accessable (hosts.allow/deny) for localhost

rlogin localhost
press "a" and some returns and then try to move up with cursorkeys
(or spaces and then "left")
