Firstly my X.org version:
X Window System Version 188.8.131.52 (Ubuntu 6.8.1-1ubuntu8 20041219153722
Release Date: 2 October 2004 + 6.8.x branch CVS
Now the problem:
Turn on numlock key while in X (so that you can use numpad). Now switch to a
tty like tty6 with CTRL-ALT-F6. Note that Numlock is still on but it should be
off because I didn't enable numlock in tty6. Now go back to X with
CTRL-ALT-F7. Now notice that numlock is now disabled(!). And if you try to
enable it you hate to press numlock key _twice_.
Also worth noting this bug is reproducable with X.org 6.8.0 .
Note that when you go back to X from vt6 (or any vt) you can still use
numpad.So although numlock led is off, numpad works.
Still same problem in X.org 6.8.2
Problem exists in latest CVS still.
Duplicate to 1530.

I'm still having the issue with Xorg 7.7 and linux 3.2. For instance, starting from numlock enabled both on VT1 and in Xorg. Switching to VT1, and then switching back to xorg, the numlock disappears in xorg (although numlock is really enabled). One has to press numlock twice to get the led back on.
