Not offhand. It looks to me like if you're running emacs in a plain
console (not X) NumLock works as expected. Similarly, running in X
mode gives expected results. Only running emacs in terminal mode in
a terminal emulator is screwing up -- so I guess the workaround is
don't do that.

I see two distinct sets of escape sequences depending on NumLock,
but very strangely I see differences between xterm and zvt, which
sort of suggests problems in terminal emulators and/or terminfo.
I'm also seeing some evidence of emacs mapping commands to raw keys
regardless of NumLock state. (You can use ^Q to quote the next
character code, but raw key events escape quoting.) Very fishy.
