bash command history problem


I'm having problems getting the bash command history to work correctly with slack 8.1.

After setting vi mode with "set -o vi" I can't scroll through my history with '<ESC> k' like I could in any previous version of bash. However, if I am root the history works correctly.

The history in ~/.bash_history is correct and gets updated with new commands. Also the c shell style history commands with the bang '!' thingy all work. Like !! and !200.

It works fine for me. I am using
GNU bash, version 2.05a.0(1)-release (i386-slackware-linux-gnu)

Do arrow keys work, or you have a keyboard w/o them?
