I issued your command line on my RH 6.2 box and it worked fine with the 
exception of the display statement...but I don't think that it's the display 
your having trouble with. What version of xterm are you using? What version 
of Exceed are you using. I get the following:

$ xterm -version

Does this command line work locally on this box? man ulimit says that it is 
an obsolete routine. It seems to have set limits on processes in the shell. 
I'm not to this level of understanding the Unix/Linux environment.

I have seen the backspace key return ^D and ^H but not what you have 
mentioned above.

My output returns the same...Hmmm....This is a good one...
