Problems with Terminal Emulation

I'm using FreeBSD 4.8-R. I've been having some problem that I believe
are related to terminal emulation.
- In Vim 6.1 when I press "i" for insert then press any of the ARROW
keys on my keyboard a capital letter is inserted into the cursor's
current position. This also happens in Vi.
- Again, in Vi or Vim, pressin the "INSERT" key doesn't enter me into
- In EE, when I press the DELETE key the EXIT Menu pops up. When I press
the BACKSPACE key, the space to the right of the cursor is deleted.
This happens whether I'm in a terminal window in KDE, at the console, or
SSHed from a Winblows system.
I use the BASH shell (version 2.05b). The default TERM variable is
"xterm". The same problem occurs when I use "xterm-color".
I've also tried tcsh with similar results.
Please help before I put a bullet in the Daemon! :-(
