Looking around the Sun Java bug data base and other source, it seems
that the Num Lock (and other Lock) problem is still unresolved,
and a solution is planned for the Input Method framework.
About kaffe, i think the following should be consistent with the
If the NumLock is pressed, the KeyEvents generated will
1) KeyPressed, with keycode VK_NUMPADx (x : 0..9)
2) KeyTyped, with keychar 'x'
3) KeyReleased, with keycode VK_NUMPADx
Would this break the compatibility with existing Java code ?
If yes, what other solution can be considered ?
We are considering this fix for inclusion in the Mandrake/MacMillian
distributed kaffe rpm ... so the question is rather important ...
