No, it just has no effect.  The DEL key remains bound to
delete-backward-char and keeps trying to delete the previous
character.

No "error in init file", no crash, just completely ignored.

And last time I tried binding DEL to a different function,
e.g. find, it ignored that too, it isn't just the delete-char
function it doesn't like.  But I can retry that to be sure if
you think it would be worth a try?

BFN.  Paul.
