I've always had some magic in my Xdefaults for Motif. 

*XmText.translations: #override\n\
      <Key>osfDelete: delete-previous-character()
*XmTextField.translations: #override\n\
      <Key>osfDelete: delete-previous-character()

Without this, things were kind of screwy.  I've never investigated
what it does or if I still need it.  Someone just told me when I was
getting started with Linux, "You need this in your Xdefaults for
Motif." so I added it and went on.
