My impression was that people had found ways to fix this problem.

The Cygwin code uses standard Win32 API calls to get it's keystrokes.
I have no idea why there would be problems with arrow keys and I'm not
going to be much help debugging the problem.

This will require a cygwin developer (Sergey or Corinna perhaps) who use
a non-US keyboard to isolate and fix the problem, if there is a problem.
