Description of problem:
in Architecture - s390x stale system, the down-arrow key causing cursor movement
on the same line towards right horizentally and up-arrow key causing vursor
movement towards left side!! not up and down vertically, at all. Its happening
for Desktop and i18n locales both.

Cursor movement for up & down key is proceeding horizentally instead of vertical
The cursor should move up and down when pressing up and down arrow key.

Happens also in Seamonkey (textareas) and Thunderbird (e.g. message composer).
Please also note that Home and Page Up keys move the cursor left, and End and
Page Down keys move it right. Tested on s390x using vnc.
