> I'm not sure that DEL sending DEL is actually wrong!  :-)

You're confusing the key and the character it sends (and the behavior you
want to associate with the key, and the behavior you want to associate
with the character).

The key you call DEL is the key you want to delete-forward, but the
character DEL is the event sequence sent by the terminal to Emacs that is
normally associated with delete-backward: clearly the "DEL" key should not
send a "DEL" character in your case (and this depends on your expectations,
not on the name of the key or the name of the character).
