Below is the copy & paste from the Interpreter.

kracekumar@python-lover:~/codes/python/Python-3.3.0b1$ python3.3
Python 3.3.0b1 (default, Jun 27 2012, 22:27:38) 
[GCC 4.6.3] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> __builtins__
<module 'builtins'>
>>> ^[[A^[[A 

On pressing the up arrow inside 3.3 b1 interpreter doesn't show previously typed variable or statement.

This test was carried out in ubuntu 12.04.

It looks like the Python you are using was built without GNU readline.  You probably need to install the libreadline-dev package from Ubuntu and rebuild Python.

I recreated this issue on (mostly) fresh install of Ubuntu Server 12.04. I installed libreadline-dev and then removed and re-installed Python 3.3.0b1. This resolved the issue.
