At first I thought this wasn't be correct in an xterm as I always get rase =
^H. However, I found out that this behaviour wasn't the default but caused
by tset. So if I get this right this is a bug in tset, correct? 

BTW stty sane sets erase to ^? as does tset on the console. Chnaging tset
for xterm could be a way to find an end in this discussion.
