Description Hans de Goede 2000-04-05 17:40:57 EDT
The subject says it all dunno why it does this, but it does,

To fix this, a backspace mapping should be added to the keybindigns list,
and then the
*VT100*backarrowKey: false
line can be removed from /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults/XTerm

The line to be added to the keybindings is:
                        <Key>BackSpace: string(0x7f)                \n\
Comment 1 Hans de Goede 2000-06-14 12:34:31 EDT
This appears to have been fixed with the xterm shipped with XFree-4.0, so I'm
closing this one.
