Check config settings

Have you taken a look at your configuration settings? It appears that the cursor is not acting context sensitive as it should. Context sensitive means that the cursor adapts to the active command.
I think I had similar problems not long ago.. Have you tried turning off the 2-D Command Emulator in 'view'???

I found this worked with my version;)
