Description of problem:
1 and 7 on the numeric keypad do not work, more specifically, they
output ^[[4~ and ^[[1~ respectively
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

The string "^[[4~"
The character "1".
Fixed by changing /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults thusly:

What version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux are you using?
This is filed against "Q3 Errata Beta". Please update the
version field to be the particular RHEL release you're using,
and also indicate what version of xterm is installed.
Thanks in advance.
Setting status to "NEEDINFO", awaiting information requested
Sorry. I mistook "Q3" to be Update 3, which it is not, of course.
[root@monolith httpd]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 3)
[root@monolith httpd]# rpm -q xterm
1 and 7 on the numeric keypad works fine for me in RHEL 3. Please contact
Red Hat Global Support Services to open a technical support ticket for this
issue, at https://www.redhat.com/apps/support/ or by calling 1-888-REDHAT1
and a technical support associate will be able to assist you with the
problem. If they determine there is a defect that needs addressing, they
will escalate the issue internally to engineering for investigation once
they have acquired all of the relevant details.
Hope this helps.
