here's a bug with how the backspace key doesn't work across computers.
i'm not sure if there were troubles going from FBSD to FBSD, but there is
when i ssh from my ubuntu platform to my main desktop. i do this to edit
files or for replying to mutt mail using vi.
going from ethos [ubuntu] to tao [fbsd] and using vi, the backspace key
is translated to \177 and is echoed as "^?". it does not erase. i have
% stty erase ^V [backspacekey]
to fix this problem. otherwise, to erase a character, i have to type a
control-H. it is exact the same problem going from fbsd to ubunto.
has anybody seen this before?
