Hi folks,

my delete-key behaves as backspace since commit 9d9e049eac3dacb2725f9d792f7cdd2230062313 on all my linux machines (debian, fedora, ubuntu) and openbsd.
i had this problem in the past (and wrote to this list about it), and my .zshrc since then contains stty erase ^H:

    $ stty -a | grep erase
    ... erase = ^H; ...

like suggested in the FAQ. I read all kinds of links about the terminal issues with backspace and delete, yet i am not able to fix this issue.

Output of CTRL-V + DEL (on both openbsd and fedora, both have stty erase = ^H):

st, zsh: ^?
st, bash: ^[[P
gnome-terminal, zsh: ^[[3~
gnome-terminal, bash: ^[[3~

Any hints? Or reasons, why the behaviour was reverted?
