A friend of mine had the same problem with his German Win98 and after
a lot of searching in the mailing list archives, creative guessing and
just trying all weird keys I ever thought of I figured out, that at
least for him it works when he enables Num-Lock and uses the cursor
key representations on the numeric key block instead.

To Cygwin developers: Is this a known issue or should I compile some
information about it and send it to you?
