Still more context (sorry, our mail server bit the dust over the  
weekend).  The problem with the keypad is almost certainly that you  
need to strip out the modifier that represents the numlock key (which  
is "nonstandard" from the point of view of X11, which was developed on  
and for workstations that didn't use a numlock key --- that came in  
only with PCs).
