I'm surprised neither of them work.  The linux console is set up to
produce a delete when backspace is hit.  XFree emulates this.  Typical
behavior is both bs and del producing a del.  Here is the xmodmap
sequence to set both, though the second shouldn't be necessary.

xmodmap -e << END

! Fixes backspace
keycode 22 = BackSpace

! Shouldn't be necessary
keycode 107 = Delete

If you need to fool with xmodmap more, you can find out keycodes with
xev(1) and keysymnames from <X11/keysymdef.h>.
