I'm trying to figure out how to get SSH sessions to work how I want using the terminal application on Mac OS X.

This is typically at prompts from some custom Python scripts on the box I log into. This doesn't happen with PuTTY on Windows.
BTW I'm logging into a Ubuntu Linux server running OpenSSH.
What do I need to do so that backspace is consistently backspace?
