memstick serial console install is completely illegible ... am I doing something wrong ?

I have the latest 9.1-RELEASE memstick image burned to a USB drive.
I boot from that and connect to my device with a serial console. At some point, the installer asks me what terminal emulation I am using - I choose vt100.
But then things go to hell ...
I am not complaining that the screen draw is a bit weird, or that a lot of weird characters are used, etc. ... my problem is that I cannot even interact with it properly. The up and down arrows seem to be interpreted as <enter>, which makes choosing menu items impossible ... the partition editor is completely unusable since it is getting drawn all over the screen and I can't use the up and down arrow keys ...
I thought vt100 would be the safest choice - what am I doing wrong here ?
