did anyone suggest

  (normal-erase-is-backspace-mode 0)

in ~/.emacs

if that doesnt do what you want, then replace the 0 with a 1. i know you
have it working, this is just out of curiosity.

this was something i had issues with when i started using emacs, but i
wanted the opposite to what you wanted. when i read the docs, it
basically said all DEL/BACKSPACE issues could be solved with that call.
but that may be more to do with emacs picking up key mappings


please excuse me if this post is redundant, but i guess everyone is a
little confused as to why things are a little bit borked on Paul's
machine (from the shear length of the thread for such a trivial issue)
