These arrows have been removed for word-wrap (Soft Wrap) mode.  I'm  
not sure how easy it would be to get them back - the fringe is  
generally quite customizable.
The change makes sense because wrapped lines are the normal case in  
soft-wrapped documents.

If you turn off word wrapping, you'll see the dots or arrows again.
