Description:
I have only seen this problem on Cygwin. I've tried to duplicate it on RedHat and Arch Linux, but it works fine there.

Basically, when using vi mode, I've noticed text get deleted when I use the arrow keys to move the cursor in insert mode.


Repeat-By:
1. Switch to vi-mode. Doesn't matter how this is done. I have "set -o vi" in my .bashrc file. 2. Type a bunch of random or non-random characters. This will be in insert mode by default. 3. Now push the left arrow key down and hold it until it goes to the beginning of the line. Most of the time, a huge chunk of characters are deleted. 4. If this doesn't work, hold the right arrow key down to go back to the other end of the line to see if it happens. 5. Repeat. It happens pretty frequently for me, so it shouldn't be hard to replicate if it's going to happen at all.
