Good luck on this 2004 bug. Though I am a bit surprised CentOS6 is any
different from recent Fedora.
I've noticed steady improvement on Fedora numlock handling since 2004. It's
mostly right now.
I think I stopped seeing the magically-turns-off problem a few Fedoras ago, but
I can't be positive. Make sure you aren't just accidentally hitting numlock
when you go to hit page-up like I always do.
The main issue I still see (but can't nail down) is when you hit numlock with a
modifier key, or when scroll-lock is also on. Sounds weird, but I often do
shift or alt or ctl and page-up and I do it without looking and sometimes go a
touch too far. That can put the numlock into a weirdo state where it's
actually backwards, just as you describe. This should be easy to test.
However, "normal" "non-mistake" usage for me almost never results in
numlock anymore. Like I said, they've been improving.
I think we'd have to provide them with concrete, simple, repeatable steps
before anything new is going to get done on this.
PS: you might have better luck by telling BIOS to have numlock off and trying
to configure Fedora to turn it on. That might avoid the extra 1-2 state
changes you are seeing.
