>Backspace key generates '^?' charactor, instead of erase one charactor.
That's because the backspace key on your keyboard generates a keycode
that is translated to ^? by wskbd. This is true for the keymap provided
by pckbd, but the keymap from the ukbd driver maps the key to ^H.
X11 will use the same keysym for either and xterm translates that keysym
to ^H (or to ^? or to the VERASE value from the tty layer).
