Probably you have your erase character configured to be ^? when the
keyboard is sending ^H, or vice versa. Ftp uses readline, which
automatically accepts either as an erase character.
I usually fix this by using xmodmap to get the keyboard to send ^?
when you hit the backspace key, and then doing ``stty erase ^?''.
