No, backspace should backspace regardless of the typing mode. If you 
want to overwrite with a space, type a space.

Otherwise, backspace can only go backwards a maximum of one position. 
If you hit backspace twice in a row, the first time you replace the 
previous character with a space. The second time you replace the space 
with a space. This would be a bug.
