Using arrow keys with vim in FreeBSD: spurious characters

The Problem

In FreeBSD, when using vim in INSERT mode, using the arrow keys results in the characters A, B, C or D being inserted.

The Solution

In .vimrc include the setting :set nocompatible. This solves the problem.

(Further discussion of the problem available here).
