When using the Emacs that is installed within Maneage (run within Maneage's './project shell'), some time ago a user reported that the back-space key was acting like the delete key (deleting forward!).

After some inspection, we discovered the following emacs configuration to fix the problem. We can add a default configuration file for Emacs in Maneage to have this activated all the time on a new system.
