[SATLUG] vim version changes

In our latest upgrade we went from vim 6.3.7 to 7.0.237.
One change in vim I noticed is that the backspace key now erases
hard returns, the old version did not do that, and stopped at the
beginning of the line.

Now the question could be argued if this is the appropriate behavior,
but I am used to the old way and liked it. Is there a setting in vimrc
that I can make to prevent backspaces from being erased?

Thanks, -b.
