Arrow keys not working in Vim on Cygwin

Installed Cygwin today on my machine (ThinkPad, XP SP3). The arrow keys in Vim always bring me out from insert mode. And there is no syntax highlight at all.

The quick fix is copy /usr/share/vim/vim73/vimrc_example.vim to ~/.vimrc. Then everything works perfectly now.
