Thumbs down [Q] That damn alt+backspace!

Does anyone how to disable the alt+backspace "shortcut" that deletes the current line?

I really hate it, and searching around the internets there have been complaints about it since the first Android phone!

I've tried remapping del with a custom keymap, but no luck.
Does any developer out there has a clue where this is in the source? I don't mind commenting out the feature and recompiling my own rom, but I haven't been able to find where it is myself.

Thanks!

I would assume it is in keychars/keylayout, but never really looked for it

Doesn't seem like so. It's seems like its a built-in behavior, at least I wasn't able to find the alt+del combo being defined anywhere.
