Arrow keys in mplayer

I'm a bit puzzled by the behaviour of the arrow keys when using mplayer
under the console.
According to the man page, left and right arrow keys should
rewind/fast-forward by 10 seconds; and the /etc/mplayer/input.conf seems to
set that explicitly.
But when I try using the left and right arrow keys, all that happens is the
playback speed reduces, as if I'd actually pressed the [ key. I've
verified this by pressing the right arrow key a few times, then pressing
the ] key a few times to increase the speed again, and get back to the
I know very little about mplayer; I've done practically no customisation,
and just normally use the very basic keys (p for pause, arrow keys to
rewind/fast-forward by 10 seconds or a minute). That's normally all I
need, though. (When I say normally, that's on a Linux system; I was
expecting it to work the same on Cygwin).
Oh, the version number (as returned by `mplayer -v') is 1.1-4.8.1.
Help much appreciated!
