The arrow key always work when you run Emacs under X, it is when you use
a terminal emulator that you can have problems.

The windows telnet has a broken emulation. Score one for Microsoft 
that got you to blame Emacs. I have used putty with good results. It 
emulates xterm, which is obviously the right thing to do today. Just
remember to set backspace/delete right!

Anyway, I just tested Emacs 21.2 on Debian with an application-mode
using terminfo entry, and the arrow keys work. So this might not
be the problem after all.
