Using kitty 0.9.1, if I run kitty cat, then type

Ctrl-V Backspace, Ctrl-V Ctrl-Backspace

I expect to see two different characters come up - ^? (0x7f) and ^H (0x08) respectively. This is the case on other terminal emulators like termite.

However on Kitty they both come up as ^?. This makes it impossible to map that key combination in programs such as (neo)vim.

Using GLFW_DEBUG_KEYBOARD=1 I can see that the ctrl-modifier is detected when I press Ctrl-Backspace, so my keyboard setup is working, I think.

Could you please make Ctrl-Backspace send the ^H keycode?

I think I have the same problem. Using Alt + H works tho
