You all are right about the behavior of vi, but the backspace in vim is 
definitely broken. I've tried using the :fixdel command and also 
remapping the key with :map but the result is always the same. Perhaps 
this is a bug or incompatability that has arisen in vim; every other 
text editor seems to work flawlessly. Thanks
