Re: BS in rxvt+ncurses

I've been having all sorts of horrible troubles with rxvt.  Every time I
think I've got it working, something else goes wrong.

At the moment, the problem seems to be that under rxvt, ncurses
interprets backspace as KEY_DC, i.e. "delete".  This is because hitting
backspace is sending ASCII 127, which is indeed delete.  If you want to
fix things quickly yourself, take the current rxvt entry, change kbs to
\177, and change kdch1 to "\E[3~".  That should do it.

I'll have this fixed in ncurses 1.9.9g-7...sigh...
