How do you get the delete key to work on a Macbook pro? The default key binding sends something other than delete. Adding bindkey "^[[3~" delete-char to a custom config file doesn't do it.

Edit: The delete key seems to be deleting one character at a time as it should, but the cursor moves forward when it is hit--very confusing. Am I the only one seeing this?

Edit: Okay, so declaring my terminal as 'vt100' instead of 'xterm-color' as it was before appears to fix the delete cursor issue along with a couple of other oddities.
