I noticed that after starting a new game, I can't use the delete key to remove text that I have entered, IE if I type in hii<delete>, hii shows up instead of hi.
I think you should have used backspace key, not delete here? If you used hii<left arrow><delete> it should work, too.

Yeah, the Backspace key on my keyboard (Mac-based Kensington) is labeled delete. Sorry for the confusion.
OK then, and I assume you are still having the problem, yes? I can't reproduce it on Linux. Is this with the 1.4.3-release version, or with the development (CVS) version as you noted?
Perhaps you have a game binding for this key.
Does the bug still persist after you delete "id1/config.cfg" ?
Assigning to Kristian
This is fixed in the svn as of rev. 4528. The fix will be integrated in the next v1.5.2 release. Closing as fixed.
