numeric keypad not working?

I can't use the keypad to move, whether numlock is on or off, I can't even rebind keys from the options menu.

This is on Linux, Ubuntu 10.04. Standard US keyboard layout, except that Caps Lock is bound as a second left Control key. It worked fine under beta 23 (last time I really played.) Did anything change regarding keyboard input in that time?
