This is a known problem, and in fact has been fixed (I was so happy).
Unfortunately the new version of ncurses that fixes this has not made
it to the public ftp sites.  In the interim you can do the following
(probably dumb and overkill, but it works):

reset vt100
reset xterm

I think that's also fixed.  In the interim try using an actual Ctrl-H
key sequence, or the "delete" key (under "insert") instead of
backspace.  That might work.
