So we can't really expect it to work in all kinds of terms.

Fixing it would mean to either

- add more terminfo files into d-i, and you'll have to pass e.g
TERM=xterm along console=ttyS0
- hack the vt102 terminfo into also recognizing xterm arrow sequences
as such. I'm afraid it's not even possible without breaking the vt102
