So creating a new list field (with the same script as the old one) and deleting the old list field did the trick. I don't know what field property setting that I was unaware of caused this problem. AFAIK, there should be no field property that blocks a list field from getting arrowkey messages, but something was doing it…. Anyway, problem solved.
