You're right. That binding was in /etc/emacs/site-start.el

(Xlaunch (define-key global-map [(delete)] "\C-d"))

which is the mandrake configuration file for emacs. From this I understand rewritting

(Xlaunch (define-key global-map [(delete)] 'delete-char))

is more appropiate isn't it?

Thanks also to Barry for reminding that delete-char exists.
