      That's actually the expected behavior; see :help compatible-default
      and :help cpo-v

      The upshot is that when you don't have a vimrc, vim defaults to vi
      compatibility, and "Backspaced characters remain visible on the screen
      in Insert mode," and when you do have a vimrc you no longer get the
      somewhat irritating vi-compatible behavior; instead "the characters
      are erased from the screen right away."
