Bug#481759: konsole: Backspace behavior breaks aptitude, screen

Package: konsole
Version: 4:3.5.9.dfsg.1-2+b1
Severity: important

When running "aptitude" or "screen" from a shell started inside a
konsole terminal, the backspace misbehaves. This is true even if
aptitude is used from Sid, Etch or Sarge. When the same versions of
aptitude is used from the virtual console or from gnome-terminal,
everything is ok.

Reproduction steps:
Open konsole
from the shell, start aptitude
press "/" to start a search
type something
try to delete it by pressing backspace - nothing happens.
Press ctrl-H - the last character is deleted as if backspace was pressed

Open konsole
from the shell, start "screen"
in that shell, type "12345", and then left arrow twice
Press backspace - you would expect the 3 to be deleted. Instead, the 4
is deleted.
Press ctrl-H - the three is deleted.
This problem actually happens with gnome-terminal as well, but not with
the virtual console.
