Description Tomas Janousek 2007-03-16 11:48:03 UTC
Description of problem:
The delete key works as backspace in the bottom-line -- like when editing the
subject etc.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
mutt-1.5.14-1.fc7 (and all the other mutt versions i've ever seen)

How reproducible:
Run mutt in xterm/rxvt/linux console, type 'm', type something, move the cursor
to the middle of the line and press delete.

Actual results:
The char on the left side of the cursor is deleted.

Expected results:
The char under the cursor should be deleted.

Ok, the config file in mutt-1.5.14-2.fc7 has the correct binding.
