Do you have `xkeycaps'? Try messing with the keysyms some with that.
I think when X starts up, if no xmodmap is loaded, it takes its
initial keysym values from the tty settings. So, if you load the
keyboard settings, using the `kbd' package:
# m4 /usr/share/keytables/hypermap.m4 > /etc/kbd/default.map
... for the next boot, and for this time do:
# loadkeys /etc/kbd/default.map
... after you create the default.map file.
Try that, and see if things are improved any. I've found that with
that and an "~/.Xmodmap" that sets up <-[Backspace] and [Delete] to
the default keysyms--- using `xkeycaps'--- everything works pretty
much as expected.
What version of XEmacs are you talking about?
