      If you ":set list", and 'listchars' is unset, every hard tab you type
      should appeat as ^I

      If you ":set list", and 'listchars' has a properly set "tab:" subentry,
      then that should be used to display hard tabs. To display them as
      spasces, use for instance

      :set list listchars=tab:\ \ ,eol:$

      (two backslash-escaped spaces: see :help option-backslash ).

      In both cases, the backspace ought to work properly...

      What does Vim answer to

      :verbose set list? listchars? lazyredraw?
      :if !has('gui_running') | verbose set t_kb? t_kD? | endif

      and what appears if (in Insert or Command-line mode) you hit Ctrl-V (or
      Ctrl-Q if you use Ctrl-V to paste into Vim) followed by Backspace?
