I'm having EXACTLY the same issue with VBox SDL:

With GUI - everything is FINE, with SDL - exactly as described in above tickets:

arrows, home, end, pgup, pgdn, etc. keys act like numpad with NumLock on - arrow keys produce numbers 2,4,6,8, Del produces "." etc. Major difference is that this behavior observed when NUMLOCK is ON (both groups of keys - on numpad and separate - produce digit, point, etc.), when it's off BOTH groups works as arrows, Home, End, etc.

Host : Windows XP SP3 32bit

Can't immediately reproduce this, but numlock does seem to be working strangely in VBoxSDL here too - the normal arrow keys are completely unaffected, but the numpad doesn't always know when numlock is on and when it is off.

Please reopen if still relevant with a recent VirtualBox release.
