I use the following, which might be an overkill but it eradicates
pc'ish "backspace".

XTerm*ttyModes:                 erase ^?
XTerm*ptyInitialErase:          True
XTerm*backarrowKeyIsErase:      False
XTerm*VT100*backarrowKey:       False

XTerm*VT100*Translations:#override \
        <Key>BackSpace:         string(0x7f)            \n

SY, Uwe
