You can us stty erase "^H" (or what ever might be appropriate for the terminal) to get this to work. I was able to observe the exact symptoms you reported and correct do the above.

I have always used xterm and until today I never have discovered those

What about the fact that when "rm" command (or cp or mv) ask to confirm

I discovered the following strange behaviour in bash and xterm (startxwin)

BACKSPACE does not delete "y" as aspected but it only shifts the cursor on
"y" and when I type "n" and then RETURN the file foo.txt is REMOVED!

This has something to do with how BACKSPACE is defined in xterm. It is not a generic cygwin problem. I suggest that you try the cygwin-xfree mailing list in that case.

Also, there is absolutely no reason to cc corinna-cygwin in your email.  Go
