While testing shift-Num Lock and other combos I noticed that
the mouse pointer was moving around a little when I was
hitting the keypad keys. That tickled a neuron or two and I
started searching and found that "Allow to control the
pointer using the keyboard" was checked in "Keyboard
Preferences". I unchecked it and that solved the problem!

I just noticed today that my numeric keypad doesn't work
under Gnome, but works fine in a console session.
(Ctl-Alt-F1) I've tried changing the keyboard brands and
models but nothing makes any difference. Still doesn't work,
regardless of NumLock setting. And the LED does turn on and
off with the NumLock.
Anybody have the solution for this problem?
I had this problem too a few days ago, some Ubuntu forum stated I should
try a [Shift + Num Lock], and it worked.
I have no idea why the keypad ceased to work, but no more troubles
Thanks for the hints and suggestions!
