+You should not be sending C-H or C-? manually
+You should be using your terminal's backspace key.
+Mono has two modes of operation, in 1.0 and 2.0 without the new
+console activated (it gets activated when you use any of the new 2.0
+APIs) it will let the kernel do the reading.
+When the 2.0 console is activated, it will internally map the terminal
+configured backspace character into backspace, according to Unix rules.
+If you send escape sequences manually, you will get the wrong behavior.
