Can't get terminfo and backspace key in sync
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:21 EDT
Terminfo defines backspace key as kbs=\177 (i.e. ^?) but
backspace key in xterm generates ^H . So I redefined terminfo
record for xterm to kbs=^H, restarted X but now the backspace
key generates ^? ...
Can't seem to reproduce in our latest rawhide packages. If I use
any of BS, DEL, or ^H, they all do as expected.
