Weird, that seems to work now.  Never mind...

Yup, figured that out.  This requires extra keystrokes though.  And is
contrary to user expectations for no good reason IMHO.

The real problem is that having the the arrows move the focus
up/down/left/right seems to result in bizarre and inconsistent behavior.
In addition to the intransitivity, other widgets like the message list
pane bind the arrow keys as soon as you enter them.
