Description of problem:
I have an italian keyboard and I can't write the numbers (except 5) from keypad
in gEdit (with blocknum activated, naturally): the cursor moves like if the
blocknum is off. With Mozilla and OpenOffice all is ok.
The keyboard is PS/2.
Do you get the same problem in other gtk 2 applications, for example
in "gtk-demo" double click "text widget" on the left side and
try typing into the text area that pops up?
No, in gtk-demo all is ok.
N.B.: the system language is english, only the keyboard is italian: I don't know
if this can help you.
In beta3 all is ok! Thank you: you can to close the bug.
There were some fixes in GTK+ related to numeric keypad handling if
you disabled the XKB extension. This might be related to that.
In any case, if it works now, there's not much more we can to debug
what was going on :-)
