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.

I didn't have the same problem with the 62xx (or the lone 52xx I used, 
for that matter) but then, it's all Broadcom software; it doesn't matter 
how competent/understanding the guys at Dell are, Broadcom won't lift a 
finger without a smoking gun.

I think of the three or four bugs that Dell passed through to Broadcom 
on my behalf (i.e. I'd had to convince at least one other person that it 
wasn't appropriate behaviour), only one was acknowledged and fixed.

With that in mind, I wouldn't waste your time!
