xterm-192-4.EL4 and Exceed
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:27 EST
Description of problem:
The problem occurs when connecting via Hummingbird Exceed v.10 to a Linux
machine with Kernel 2.6.9-42.ELsmp that has xterm-192-4.EL4. Once an XTerm
window is opened, the Backspace key mapping breaks. It cannot be set via the
following stty either:
stty erase ^H
stty erase '^?'
Note that the problem does not exist when connecting to a Linux machine with
Kernel 2.6.9-34.X that has xterm-192-1 using the same connection method and user
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Using Hummingbird Exceed v.10 via "Secure Shell" method and "xterm" command.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Using Exceed's Secure Shell method, connect to a Linux machine with Kernel
2.6.9-42.ELsmp and has xterm-192-4.EL4.
2. Backspace key no longer works, nor can it be set via stty erase.
Additional info: The problem does not exist when connecting to a Linux machine
with Kernel 2.6.9-34.X that has xterm-192-1 using the same connection method and
The problem is probably caused by backarrowKey resource, which was changed in
the last update.
To fix it, delete line "*VT100*backarrowKey: false" in file
