Yes, I gave arrow keys as an example where macros were (and in other variants are) needed. There's also a cursor setting in the terminal which encodes numpad 1 and 7 differently, and angband 4 preffered a different setting than angband 3 here to run as expected (although either version could be used with either setting with some pref file editing).

It's not just a keymap/macro level thing - it's a more fundamental feature of modern V's input system that it recognises arrow keys as arrow keys (and page up/down as page up/down etc.) Before I rewrote the input system somewhere around 3.2, the game had no notion of arrow keys, there were just escape sequences that were mapped to numbers in the macro layer.
takkaria whispers something about options. -more-
