I just decided to check out Python 2.0 and all seems well but for one thing.  
When I execute the interpeter I cannot use my arrow keys to repeat a command. 
 Is there something simple I missed.  I really like this command history 
feature.  Does anyone know how to turn it on?
When I do hit the the arrow keys I just get garbage on the screen:
