Description kris 2001-03-01 19:03:23 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.72 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.14-5.0 i586)

This bug is similar to the one reported in Bug#10389 with fewer components
required to induce the error.  I do not have Screen installed, yet from
both the Konsole and xterm terminal emulators, in a Vim session, pressing
the backspace key presents a literal "^?" to the screen.  This does not
when using the kvt emulator or using a terminal outside of X, and unlike
bug 10389 where this occurred for only an su to root, it occurs for all

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run vim from Konsole or Xterm
2.press backspace key (the character '^?' is output to the file)
3.does not occur in kvt or non-X terminal, does occur for every system user


Actual Results:  ^?

This was actually due to a default setting in these emulators setting the
backspace to key to issue a delete "^?" sequence...not a bug.
