I've never had this problem but I'd look at the terminal emulation you're using. You might try using a different terminal type then see if you can replicate the problem. I would imagine you don't use the insert key since it seems to mess you up (only at TCL???) so maybe redefine just that key?
Good luck.

Well, after I do this my backspace will no longer work. What I see on the screen when I enter the backspace key is the letters to the left are displayed to the right of the cursor preceded by a space. I can enter the replacement character(s) and they will work but when I look at the line to check it the line will always have: '*--:' appended to the end of the line. It does not matter what I do after this to try to get back to what was working before. (I do plenty of backspacing so this is not a small problem.) The only thing that works is to logoff and then log back on. This will reset the editor to work correctly again. I have tried hitting the 'Insert' key again, thinking that it would switch back to the original mode, to no avail. Has this happened to anyone else? Or am I the only lucky one with this problem? If it has happened to you, do you have another fix besides logging off the system?
