I can't help you with Tim's machine, but I tried it on my own. (I'm
currently running emacs-23.0.94 in cygwin-1.7.) It's clear that the
keypad keys are not recognized as such when running emacs in rxvt or
emacs -nw in an xterm. The same thing happens in a third terminal that
I tried, mintty.
In addition, emacs sees C-h as DEL in all three cases, so it isn't
recognized as the help key. I had to use F1 for help.
Here are the results. First, for comparison, I ran emacs under X
(without -nw). With numlock on, I typed '123456' on the keypad,
followed by C-h l. The results were as expected:
<kp-1> <kp-2> <kp-3> <kp-4> <kp-5> <kp-6> C-h l
Next, I tried the three terminals I mentioned above, typing '123456' on
the keypad, followed by F1 l:
emacs -nw in xterm: 1 2 3 4 5 6 ESC O P l
emacs in rxvt-native: 1 2 3 4 5 6 ESC [ 1 1 ~ l
emacs in mintty: 1 2 3 4 5 6 ESC O P l
In the first and third cases, the environment variable TERM is xterm
before starting emacs, and COLORMTERM isn't set. In the second case,
TERM=rxvt-cygwin-native and COLORTERM=rxvt-xpm. In all cases, including
the good case (emacs under X without -nw), TERM="dumb" within emacs, as
shown by evaluating (getenv "TERM").
