This reminds me of a problem I spotted ages ago.  In my 
/usr/lib/kbd/keytables/local.map (yes, I admit it is my own hack, but 
this is from the original), I have the line

keycode  14 = Delete           Delete

which makes the backspace key (next to `=') give `Delete'.  Now, I think 
the ncurses documentation says that this is a Linux bug and it should 
really be C-h; however, when I tried this, backspace no longer worked in 

Has this been fixed?  If not, any ideas?  Of course, C-h in emacs is 
`help' ...
