When I telnet/rlogin/ssh into non RedHat (or non linux.. cant say. I only
use RedHat) systems backspace always acts up. If that other system is
running bash then the problem is not as severe, since bash recognises ^H
and ^?. However, if I start vi or any other terminal program things go
amok again. RedHat 6.2 is like this also. 6.1 and older was ok.
I presume this happens in X only?
If so, it's because we changed the xterm definition to match standards; the
other OSes you're telnetting to need fixing.
Alternatively, add our xterm entry to their termcap database under a different
name and export TERM=xterm-redhat or whatever.
Hmm.. ok. So I need to submit bugreports to atleast HP, Sun, NCR and SCO ?
