Woohoo!  We have a winner!    

Doing that, along with setting SecureCRT back to the way I had it with
"backspace sends delete"  gets me where I want to go.  

As others mentioned, the mentions of X resources aren't germane to
remote ssh use in terminal mode. 

Thanks all who replied though, and to Eli for the ultimate answer.
Perhaps the Debian elisp customizations that load on this version of
emacs here unset this while they were defaults on RedHat.
