ATerm backspace/delete quesion

I can't get the backspace/delete keys working properly.  Under normal
circumstances, it works fine.  However, I run a few quake servers and when I
bring the quake server console back up (under screen), neither backspace nor
delete works properly, also attempted with shift, alt, and control keys.  It
doesn't matter whether I'm using screen or not.  The exact same symptoms occur
at the nslookup prompt.

I tried compiling with and without the --disable-backspace-key
--disable-delete-key options and it made little difference.  When it's disable,
it simply presents me with a ^H instead of a different garbage character

Works fine under other terms, BTW.  

Any clues?
