	When switching from a text virtual console to one XFree86 is
	displaying on, the Num Lock light reflects the value of Num Lock
	in that console rather than the value in X.  Toggling Num Lock
	within X updates the light properly.
	Start XFree86.
	Set Num Lock to your favorite value.
	Switch to a text-mode console with Ctrl-Alt-Fn.
	Set Num Lock to the opposite value.
	Switch to the console X is displaying on with Ctrl-Alt-Fn.
	Hit Num Lock twice after switching to X.
