This is a dataloss issue, so updating severity.  Please, please fix this, CTho.
 This is exactly the sort of crap I've been trying to avoid by sticking with
seamonkey...

This bug isn't fixed.  From kb.mozillazine.org:

    "Any other integer value will simply unmap the backspace key. In Linux builds after 2006-12-07, the default is 2."

Therefore it was a regression on 2006-12-07 and must be fixed.
