The problem is that your backspace key is sending a delete instead
of ^h. You need to remap it.
Actually, this is something that I find annoying about a lot of programs.
They tend to ignore stty settings and instead just assume that you want
del for backspace instead ^h, which is, I believe, a left over bit of
fanaticism from RMS.
