gnome-terminal backspace ^?^?^?^?

Hi folks,

I have:

+RHAS4 (Gnome 2.8/Metacity window manager)
+A gnome-terminal
+My X server is: Xvnc running on RHAS4
+My client is: RealVNC vncviewer on Windows XP
+Regular HP PC keyboard

In this terminal running on localhost, backspace works fine.

But when I rlogin or ssh to an HP-UX system, backspace gives me: ^?^?^?^?

TERM is "xterm" on both localhost and when logged into the HP-UX system.

Output of stty is:

speed 38400 baud; -parity hupcl
min = 1; intr = ^C; erase = ^H; kill = ^G;
swtch ;
susp = ^Z; dsusp = ^Y;
brkint -inpck -istrip icrnl ixoff onlcr
-iexten echo echoe echok
-echoctl -echoke

Output of xmodmap is:

xmodmap: up to 2 keys per modifier, (keycodes in parentheses):

shift Shift_L (0x32), Shift_R (0x3e)
lock
control Control_L (0x25), Control_R (0x6d)
mod1 Alt_L (0x40), Alt_R (0x71)
mod2
mod3
mod4
mod5

How do I get good behaviour of my backspace key when logged onto HP-UX while in my gnome-terminal??

As always, helpful answers will be rewarded with points!

Thanks, Christian
Yeshua loves you!

Re: gnome-terminal backspace ^?^?^?^?

ok found it:

in the HP-UX session enter:

stty erase ^? # After erase press Backspace

That was pretty easy really
