Konsole's handling of numpad keys is broken. This is actually a bug, not a wishlist item. Yes, with numlock off the numpad keys behave like the standard arrows keys. That is the problem. They should send a different sequence than the standard arrow keys so that a program running in the terminal can distinguish between them. Try running rxvt and looking at what it sends for keypad-up vs. up. Rxvt handles this properly and konsole should behave similarly.

I don't know about the original reporter (although the obvious answer is KDE 3 like he said), but I am using konsole from KDE 3. Compiled from source. This is not specific to the original reporter, it's just the way konsole handles the numpad. And it's wrong.
