Connecting to FreeBSD works (FreeBSD has kbs=^H, but its userland-side
of this is more tollerant and accepts 0x7F as well).

I don't know about others. Anyone can check?

This seems like a userland problem. Is either ncurses or emacs at
fault, or does it just mean it's wrong for a terminal with black
background to use "xterm"?

Doesn't xterm, the application, have the same problem?  ISTR it had
black background.
