At the moment _everything_ works (I admit I don't use apps which need
Ctrl H for something else then backspace), but I have remapped the keys.
In my previous mail I was referring to a quick, half-hearted
attempt to get the keys right without remapping (which would be a better
way, for several reasons, I agree). I remember I got into problems with
joe, since joe depended on the Xresources
<Key>Delete: string(0x1b) string("[3~")\n\
line. However, this broke pine (which apparently can be fixed) and
pico. Anyway, before I confuse you any more I'll have a go at fixing it
