|I wonder why that works for you and not for me.
It works for me, too - and I'm using the cmd.exe shell.
There was a recent report of a similar situation with the perldl shell, too. A guy using windows found that the arrow keys wouldn't work for him in the perldl shell. Like you, my first thought was that he wasn't running the cmd.exe shell .... but he was. (That's as far as we got.)
I haven't a clue what could be causing the difference in behaviour. For me, it's the same behaviour on 2000, XP and Vista (SP1). The arrow keys work as expected.
