There is a high probability that this bug is caused by wrong patch in
4.3.0.dfsg.1-2 which also brock NumLock and CapsLock. - Can you please
verify this?

1) download http://people.debian.org/~ari/unfuck_numlock.diff to /tmp/
2) Become root.
3) cd / && patch -p0 < /tmp/unfuck_numlock.diff

See http://lists.debian.org/debian-x/2004/05/msg00693.html for
