Try adding to ~/.vimrc

set t_ku=^[[1;2B
set t_kd=^[[1;2C

You didn't mention what left/right do. But here's a guess:

set t_kr=^[[1;2A
set t_kl=^[[1;2D

NOTE: You'll have to re-launch vim after creating ~/.vimrc

Alternatively, this may be an artifact of an incorrectly-set TERM

try (if you're using csh or tcsh):

setenv TERM vt100

(or if you're using sh or bash):

export TERM=vt100

NOTE: you'll have to re-launch vim after changing TERM
