Backspace key "<-" not mapping to ^H

I'm not sure whether this just in Ubuntu or in the Gnome desktop
or what, but for days, when I type mail in vi in mutt, sometimes
I get a "^?" when I hit the backspace. ^H still works to back up
and correct my typos, but that's lots more work that what my
fingers are accustomed to. It may be when I'm ssh'd across
servers. I thought I'd ask here before I dig into this. I think
a new xterm was recently updated in ports; not sure if tat is a
factor or not.
xev understands that the b'space key is a backspace and tells me
the keycode. Should I just us xmodmaprc to fix this? thanks
for any clues!!
