I always wondered why X worked differently than the console.  I still
don't know why, but at least I have a workaround.  I propose that either
X should be patched for the key above enter to produce the Delete
keysym, or the console code be patched to produce ^H.  I don't really
care which direction, I just want it broken/fixed to a consistent state.

dumb terminals have always worked well for me under NetBSD.
