bug#12290: 23.1; Daemon mode clobbers key assignments in .emacs

My .emacs file contains the line:

  (global-set-key [M-backspace] 'backward-kill-word)

If I launch emacs from the command line, this has the normal behavior.

However, if I launch emacs in daemon mode, e.g. via

  emacsclient -c -a ''

this definition gets clobbered and [M-backspace] is redefined as kill-word.

Some poking around in the bug base turns up:


and Google turns up:


These all appear to be aspects of the same base problem. That last URL
points the finger at normal-erase-is-backspace-mode, which appears to
be invoked after .emacs is loaded by the daemon code.
