updated vim broke arrow/delete keys

Dear Gary,

you are absolutely right. Vim is not the problem.

I did two changes at the same time and indeed tried the vim -u none
but maybe did not catch the error.

Finally what causes the error is:

inoremap <esc> <Nop>

no my vimrc. From http://vimdoc.sourceforge.net/htmldoc/map.html:

A easier way to get a mapping that doesn't produce anything, is to use "<Nop>".

Anyways this is not the expected behavior. Is there some complexity
here that I'm not capturing? In theory I'm disabling the <esc> key and
that's all. Why is it interfering with m arrow keys and the del key?

Best regards,
