If you've ever used alpine, then you've probably seen this.

Hi all,
Mark Peveto here.
I'm working on ironing out a problem in Alpine.  If you've ever used it,
then I imagine you've seen the problem I'm about to describe.
Unless I change the editor during my initial setup, the editor that ships
with alpine won't read characters that are backspaced out.  Seems someone
told me there's a fix for this, but I'll be darned if I remember what it
is.  this problem only happens when using speakup.  If i'd choose to use
fenrir, then I'd not have that problem.  As far as I know, though, fenrir
isn't working with debian yet, and I'm not sure it'd support my hardware
 Does anyone know the fix for this?  Using nano can be problematic, since
it doesn't seem to want to leave the alt l option of long line wrapping on
by default anymore.
