* Short description 

Emacsclient that is X-forward over SSH switches bindings for C-backspace and

* How to reproduce the bug

First, run Emacs with -Q option on.

$ emacs -Q &

Then evaluate the following to start server:

(require 'server)

Now ssh into localhost

$ ssh -X localhost

And start an emacsclient frame by running the following command from the ssh

$ emacsclient -c &

Try C-backspace (originally bound to backward-kill-word) and C-delete
(originally, kill-word), you'll see their behavior is switched.

When I start emacs (rather than emacsclient -c) from the ssh session,
there's no problem.
When I run emacsclient -c without involving an ssh session, there's no
problem either.

* Workarounds

1. Stick to M-DEL and M-d, which aren't affected.

* System

Emacs (version)
"GNU Emacs (i486-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.14.3)
 of 2008-10-14 on rothera, modified by Debian"

Ubuntu 8.10
