This is not a default is it?  I'm pretty sure that you would need to
bind the up and down arrow keys yourself.  In either case, this sort of
dangerous binding should be deterred.

Do you have a solution?  Frankly, I cannot think of a good way (other
than a table of "bad idea" key bindings) to remedy your situation.
Also, if you did set those bindings, how did you go about doing it (I'm
just curious)?
