erase mapping w/ seqlab... anyone?

What's the "erase" key on a mac?
I haven't noticed any trouble with eXodus, but
I'm having more trouble with Xwin32 on PC.
Key mappings can be done on both and also in the
configuration file SeqLab.
I've just begun to tackle these inconsistancies and have no
definitive answers, except that everything seemed to work better
when there were no keymappings in SeqLab.
