Isn't <C-Right> already used by iTerm? – romainl Aug 18 '12 at 13:14

Most of the "Vim Crowd" would agree that not using the arrow keys is a good thing. That is why many vimrc's will include:

nnoremap <C-h> <C-w>h
nnoremap <C-j> <C-w>j
nnoremap <C-k> <C-w>k
nnoremap <C-l> <C-w>l

This will allow you to do ctrl - w then jump to up, down, left, right with hjkl bindings. This does not solve your problem with the arrow keys but, does give you a "correct" way to get to your required solution.
