So do the 55xx's, unfortunately. I'm not sure about the other PowerConnect series. The firmware largely varies in syntax from one model to the next but the 54xx and 55xx seem largely the same. If I get some spare time, I'll look into digging up some contacts from the PowerConnect team and suggest they fix the backspace console issue.
