Interesting, it seems that you have a modified termcap database, the normal one
has kD=\E[3~ for xterm-color.

What you are seeing is probably the effect of what
`normal-erase-is-backspace' does. 

Can you try setting TERM to xterm-256color and see if that the delete
key works better then?  (It's quite likely that nowadays terminal
emulators are compiled with 256 color support)
