It appears from the pstricks-add documentation that ArrowInside works  
so far only with \psline, \psbezier and their close relatives. The  
following example shows how you could get similar functionality in any  
curve, with a little additional work. You will need the pst-nodeExtras  
package at


\def\myfn{4+4*cos(t) |2+2*sin(t)}% ellipse
\curvepnodes[plotpoints=50]{0}{3.145}\myfn{P}%defines nodes P0..P49  
along curve
\psline[ArrowInside=->](P24)(P25)%half way
