Originally it was xterm but I have since switched it to vt100. I have
my .tcshrc doing an stty erase ^H, I will try it from the command line
but I am dubious. For some reason, in vi the backspace is showing up
as ^?. I think it has to do with all of the cutesy color term garbage
that has been put in (nothing like a good bias). I have been able
to eradicate most of it but I think they set something somewhere else,
I just can't figure out where.
