Description

On both the physical console with a USB keyboard and over SSH, in the shell (zsh) the backspace key deletes a whole word at a time, making it very frustrating to use. This appears to have been introduced by a recent change to .zshrc that added a binding for ^H to backward-delete-word. It is fairly common for backspace to send ^H.
