Make sure the following is present in your /etc/X11/Xresources:

*Text.translations: #override ~Shift ~Meta <Key>Delete: delete-next-character()
XTerm*termName: xterm-debian
*VT100*backarrowKey: false
*VT100.Translations: #override <Key>BackSpace: string("\177")\n\
                               <Key>Delete: string("\033[3~")\n\
			       <Key>Home: string("\033OH")\n\
			       <Key>End: string("\033OF")

I don't like introducing xterm-debian terminfo entry myself and just renamed
it to xterm.
