That's not too surprising.  DEC terminal ("vt100") behaviour is that
down-arrow generates ESC-[-B if application keypad mode is off, ESC-O-B
if on.  I'd guess that the vi in question isn't recognizing ESC-O as a
prefix, so it gets ignored and the B gets through - or, possibly, ESC
ends insert mode, the O opens a new line, and the B appears on that new
line, depending on what "put a capital B on the screen" means.
