      Description

      Hardware: Dell PC Optiplex GX620
      OS: Solaris 10 x86 11/06
      JDK Version: 1.5.0_07
      Test case: java -jar /usr/java/demo/plugin/jfc/SwingSet2/SwingSet2.jar
      Problem: Numeric Keypads not working with NumLock Key is on

      Detailed Problem Description:

      Solaris 10 x86 11/06 was freshly installed with the above configuration.
      With NumLocks on, the following keys worked as expected and displayed the associated characters:
               '1','2','3','4','5','6','7','8','9','*'.

      However the following keys did not display the associated character:

               '0','.','-','+'.

      With NumLock off we could then display the associated characters with the following keys:

                '-','+'

      Note, the 'Enter' key on the keyboard would not work in either the NumLock on or off position, and the 'Backspace' key would only function when the NumLock key was off.

      This issue is reproducible on a Sun engineer's laptop and customer is willing to ship us
      their GX620 should we need it.
      Another test case that is also reproducible:
      java -jar /usr/java/demo/plugin/jfc/Notepad/Notepad.jar
      This issue appears resolved with the latest 1.6.0 JSE:
         java -jar /usr/java/demo/plugin/jfc/Notepad/Notepad.jar
