I believe I have figured out the issue for both problems:

a) orgtbl-self-insert-command wasn't updated along with
org-self-insert-command in the commit
73a5c27cc1751721344886e7518f20ff382265b5. Changing it accordingly fixes
the issue.

b) Backspace doesn't work in prog-derived modes as orgtbl-mode seems to
just remap delete-backward-char to orgtbl, but in prog modes backspace
is bound to backward-delete-char-untabify.

Perhaps something extra should be done about backspace in orgtbl-mode
instead of just a simple remapping?
