nope. not the case here neither on the console nor under Xorg:

numlock off = cursor pad
numlock on = numbers

i'm not sure however if the issue where i need to press num lock multiple
times occurs only under Xorg or also when i'm just on the console and haven't
started Xorg at all.

i'll get back to you on that one.

cheers.
