jove editor under 2.11BSD and cursor keys

Hello,

I'm using the jove editor under 2.11BSD, the jove release is
from 1988. It works just fine, except for the cursor keys.
Even though the ansi-codes function is properly bound,
'ESC x describe-bindings' shows:

     ESC [  ansi-codes

I get whenever I hit one of the cursor keys the message

     [ESC O unbound]

TERM is set to vt100, termcap is ok, and the xterm used is
started with -ti vt100. vi for example works and accepts the
cursor keys, a dump of the chars emitted by xterm show that
the proper \[[A ect sequence indeed arrives.

Any help or hint on how to get this to work is very much
appreciated.

			With best regards,
				Walter Mueller
