Did I miss something? I'm trying NetBSD 2.0 ("stable"). Are you using the
same version?

I couldn't persuade <Delete> to be different than <BackSpace> in any other
way (with wsconsctl), than adding new symbol, which allows <Delete> to send
<Control>-<D> code.

Is it possible to add the "normal" <Delete> functionality just using
wsconsctl, like I wrote in my previous message? How should I make it
- will it be:    wsconsctl -w map+="keycode 211 = BackSpace"? Does the
<Delete> key working after such incantation in its "proper" way?
