Ok, this happens regularly on my FreeBSD box at home when I'm not

behavior so pressing backspace erases a character, not prints
This is generally a function of your terminal emulator or xterm and is a
carryover from old DEC terminal's stupid keyboard mappings.
The attached XTerm file put in $HOME/XTerm will get xterms to send ctrl-h
from the backspace key. Other programs like putty typically have a
keyboard configuration that permits setting the backspace key to send
either ctrl-H or a DEL character.
I leave it as an exercise for the student to figure out my other
this file :-).

Hmmm... you have a lot of different tweaks in there.
I'll definitely implement the delete thing as soon as possible.
The correct way to fix is to use stty(1).
For example: stty erase2 '^?'
