Yeah . . . I'm pretty sure that's normal behavior for vi/nvi.  Using
backspace, then hitting <ESC> to return to command mode, might cause the
backspace text to disappear.  Typing after backspacing might overwrite
the backspaced text without having to leave insert mode, too.  I'm going
on memory, here, and may be mistaken -- I didn't use nvi for very long
before going back to Vim.
