        I was looking at an old problem I have with wine and saw some 
record at the wine-devel and wine-users lists that I think are related 
with the same problem. Look at:
http://www.winehq.org/hypermail/wine-users/2004.03.txt  (look for "get a 
comma on the place" in your browser) and also at:
http://www.winehq.org/hypermail/wine-devel/2000.10.txt  (look for "but 
then it inserts" in your browser)

        When the NumLock is ON wine is sending an extra key. Wine deletes 
the corresponding char but also send a period (.) or a comma (,) <- it 
depends on the type of the keyboard. In my case, which is a brazilian 
ABNT2, it sends an extra comma _only_ if the NumLock is ON. It does not 
mater if I press the <del> key at the numeric key pad or at the "island" 
that contais the <del> <ins> <home> <end> ... stuff.
        I am going to open a bug at bugzilla and send the WINEDEBUG=+key 
(just the piece where the stuff happens).
