SDL keymapping problems on Windows host

Host: Windows Vista CZ Guest: MS-DOS 6.22 US

This bug is related only to SDL version. Normal Virtualbox works OK.

After guest OS is ready, ensure Numlock is on and then try to use arrow keys or Ins, Del, Home, End, PgUp, PgDn. Instead of correct behaviour these keys produce invalid keypresses. I realized it match the numeric pad keys. Pressing left arrow with Numlock on leads to "4" keypress in guest (because numeric 4 contains also left arrow for case Numlock is off), pressing HOME key leads to the "7" keypress because numeric 7 has alternative HOME when Numlock is off) etc.

Seems like arrows + Ins, Del, Home, End, PgUp, PgDn are not working as independent keys but they mirror numblock keys in SDL Virtualbox.

I tried to change host keyboard layout but it does not matter
