oh freaking wow!!!
this just got weirder!!!
i haven't had the two-press thing again, but since you listed the status
of the keys themselves, i decided to check just now...
numlock off = numbers
numlock on = cursor pad
we have two different behaviors here. please double check yours just in
case. i just double-checked, my keypad is operating opposite the way it
motherboard: intel dq45ek, most recent bios (mid august), numlock
defaults to on in bios cmos setting.
just in case, i double-checked, my external keypad is hooked up to the
laptop, not this - no conflicts there.
xorg is configured or default behavior, as is kde4.
this might be a xorg or kde issue. i just checked syscons. normal
behavior there. nums only when numlock is on.
in kde system settings: "leave unchanged" is the enabled option.
if you have kde4 installed (or any other wm) please check under x for

exactly. it might be a bit easier to understand if i explain it this way:
instance | num lock led | number keys working
--------------- | --------------------- | -------------------------
no key press | on | no
1st key press | on | no
2nd key press | off | no
3rd key press | on | yes
4th key press | off | no
5th key press | on | yes
(key press refering to the num lock key)
i just read your note here, and the following one about the long delays
(kern/99538), and was able to duplicate the two-press thing.
amd64 here, under kde, and the keyboard is a compaq pos ps/2 via a
generic mouse/kb dongle/adapter for usb i got on ebay from hong kong:
ukbd1: <vendor 0x13ba Generic USB K/B, class 0/0, rev 1.10/0.01, addr 2>
ums1: <vendor 0x13ba Generic USB K/B, class 0/0, rev 1.10/0.01, addr 2>
it seems that the press-twice scenario was only needed the first
attempt. normal behaviour after that.

i have a very tiny num lock issue with ukbd on HEAD (amd64; r211393). in my
bios i have enabled the "boot with num lock enabled" feature. when i fire
freebsd the num lock light on my keyboard is on. however the num lock keys
don't work. if i press the num lock button once nothing happens. if i hit
twice the num lock led goes off. to make the num lock feature work i have
actually hit the num lock key thrice.
is this a known issue?
