bug#20466: 25.0.50; REGRESSION in `isearch-mode-map': <backspace> is not translated to DEL

Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/25.0.50 (gnu/linux)
I installed the proposed patch, which should fix this bug, without
re-introducing the other bug.

Both appear in `current-active-maps' in some buffer at some point.
(e.g. one binding in a minor mode, another in a major-mode)

That's only if noone bound anything, in which case noone followed
neither's advice anyway. Not a very enlightening case.

Which mode? And presumably if a keymap binds Backspace it's
specifically because it wants backspace to behave differently from DEL,
in which case it's fine if function-key-map is not used.

That's because the binding we used in isearch.el followed your advice
rather than mine ;-)
