To start with, add this to your $HOME/.Xdefaults file:

*VT100.Translations: #override \
              <Key>BackSpace: string(0x7F)\n\
              <Key>Delete:    string(0x08)\n\
              <Key>Home:      string("\033[1~")\n\
              <Key>End:       string("\033[4~")
*ttyModes: erase ^?

That might fix most of the key problems in X
