For example: move to the last character in the last line of text in a file -- the cursor is positioned over the last character and I press 'i' to select insert mode.  Now press the right cursor key, and instead of moving the cursor to the right by one position I find the line is moved down and a uppercase 'C' is inserted in the line above.  Pressing the 'up' cursor arrow on the keyboard inserts a new line with an uppercase 'A' -- left cursor inserts an uppercase 'D' -- 'down' cursor inserts a 'B'.  Is this a change in vi or is this caused by a change in tty for the shell?
