I'm honestly not sure what the problem is. I would think if the terminal
is set up to emit 127 for backspace, then libtermkey (the library that
interprets keypresses) should recognize it. How did you do the remapping?
Perhaps I can try what you did and figure out the problem.

Which strings are they? Can you check the to ensure they
are correct? Perhaps some characters got mangled over time.
