redefining (meta backspace) as backward-kill-word in xemacs

I added these commands as follows:

(add-hook 'inferior-ess-mode-hook '(lambda ()
 (local-unset-key 'delete)
 (local-unset-key [(meta backspace)])
 (local-set-key [(meta backspace)] 'backward-kill-word)))

and it still doesn't work.  I should add that it has always
worked in an R process.  It fails to work when I use gnuclient
to edit, e.g., myfile.R.
