This is wrong: the <delete> key should not be mapped to DEL.  It
should be mapped to C-d, and thus run `delete-char', like it does in
xterm.

What OS is that?  Does it help to experiment with
normal-erase-is-backspace-mode?

Did you also use the --no-site-file switch?  If not, can you use it in
addition to -q and see if that changes anything?
