Arrow keys problem with VMWare Server 1.0.9 on Ubuntu 9.04

I have encountered a problem using arrow keys in virtual machines running on VMWare Server 1.0.9 on Ubuntu 9.04 host. The solution is below:
#sudo /etc/init.d/vmware stop
#sudo su
#echo "xkeymap.nokeycodeMap = true" >> /etc/vmware/config

(or echo "xkeymap.nokeycodeMap = true" >> ~/.vmware/config)

#sudo /etc/init.d/vmware start

And arrow keys now working as expected.
