Description Jonathan Kamens 2000-04-11 22:24:48 EDT
Xterm has been frobbed in Redhat 6.2 so that the back-arrow key correctly
generates a delete character instead of a backspace (C-h) character.

What are you expecting to have happen with META-DEL?  It would be helpful

Have you found a fix for this by chance?  If so, please let me know so I
can add it to our next errata release.

This appears to be fixed in XFree86-4.0.1-1.
