I don't know the answer, but I can think of a couple things you could
try. First, take a look at the news file for emacs 22. (C-u C-h C-n,
then enter 22 when you're prompted for the version.) Search for
'keypad', and you'll find a discussion of a new keypad setup package. I
don't use it myself, so I don't know if it's relevant.
A second possibility is to use the version of emacs compiled without X
support (/usr/bin/emacs-nox.exe) to see if that works better than emacs
-nw (which is really emacs-X11.exe -nw after you unwind the symbolic links).
If neither of these helps, try asking for help on emacs-devel or
help-gnu-emacs. A lot has changed since emacs 21.2.

My original plan was to build emacs 22.3 for cygwin 1.5, leaving the
bleeding edge for people who were testing cygwin 1.7. Unfortunately,
the standard method for making cygwin packages (cygport) didn't work
with emacs 22.3, so it would have been very time consuming to package
it. I decided it wasn't worth the effort since emacs 23 seems to be
reasonably stable and will probably be released in the not-too-distant
