Bug#2313: xterm keymapping problems suspected

Have a look at the keyboard-HOWTO.  It has info on remaping the
keyboard at the scan code level.  I don't know if X goes to that level
or not but I doubt it.

Hope this helps.

   Only if it starts up in its own window.  Running inside an XTerm still
   leaves you at its mercy.

   It would be nice if there was some way to separate the two.  I wouldn't
   mind mapping the real delete key to 'delete-next-char.  Every so often
   I hit "delete" and end up deleting the previous character instead of
   the next character.

       In theory, theory and practice are the same.  In practice, they're not.
