Fun with terminal types 101.
Getting it to work consistently in all apps under console, x, screen,
is black magic.  Shouldn't be, but it is :(
Quick fix for misbehaving terminals: Type "stty erase <backspace>",
which will probably print ^H instead... then it will work.  Don't
bother putting it in your .bashrc though as it will f*** up something
else. ;(
