Greetings.  I've upgraded 3.0->3.1 and now my arrow-keys don't work
at the shell command-line, I just get:
  >>> ^[[A
etc. Is there some environment-variable or option I have to set ?
I'm using xterm on debian lenny, and compiled python3.1.1, as far
as I remember, just with sh configure, make, make install ...

Regards,  Peter
