Yes - that was the point I was trying to make. It works in ALL OTHER 
TERMINALS :) I've tried xterm and eterm actually, not rxvt.

Would it make better sense to have the 'delete' and 'backspace' keys 
user-configurable (much like the 'menu' key and the 'Run Dialog' is).

I think that may be a better solution. And if somebody wants to keep both 
of them equal - voila, they can.
