I also see both giving ^? (that is, \177) on a PS2 keyboard and on my 
laptop.  I have a USB keyboard at home; I'll see what it gives.)

My test was

	stty -icanon; cat >/tmp/xx

followed by 'od -c' (and, of course, stty sane).  I don't have any stty 
calls in my .profile, though I do use 


in my kernel config file.
