I think Eric meant it for the staircase effect and Enter not
working. I'll try to dump the TERM value if I can reproduce the
problem. As often as not the debugger does not start at all because I
get into an infinite loop in the SEH handling.
So this tells me that cut&paste is implemented with a Win95-like
interface rather than the much better NT user interface.
In Win95 you have to click on a button to be allowed to select stuff
and another to copy, and yet another to paste. In NT a right-click +
drag will select stuff. Another right-click will copy it, and a
right-click will paste the contents of the clipboard.
In any case there's a documentation issue (surprise, surprise)...

NumLock has no effect on cut&paste on my machine (but my window
manager does not like it).
