      Thanks a lot for your help.
      Actually when I press backspace, it behaves like the cursor left and
      when I press escape the characters left behind are deleted.
      CTRL-h cannot delete either, neither :fixdel can fix the backspace.
      But When I create a .vimrc file with null content in my home directory,
      the backspace works, strange!
