bug#24964: 25.1; Backspace inside term/ansi-term on OSX

Yes, this is the same bug. I think it is due to weird shell initialization in macOS -- it seems like the setting of erase key in TERMINFO and TERMCAP gets ignored. For now I just manually set 'stty ek' in my .zshrc/.bashrc if TERM == eterm-color.

This looks like it might be related to bug#5331:
