Really strange.  I restarted my xterm many times, but I'm pretty sure I
had a different behavior in the first one before I eventually invoked
"stty erase '^?'"...

Not for me.  Both stty and toggeling normal-erase-is-backspace (or both)
make that either both DEL and C-h delete or activate the help menu...

Anyway, there are many good alternatives to xterm (urxvt, GNOME
Terminal, XFCE Terminal, KDE Konsole, ...).
