Num Lock at start up

Hi All,

I tried both 5.1_STABLE and 6.0_RC2.
I have already enabled Num Lock at BIOS setup.

root@netbsd:~# wsconsctl -w ledstate=2
will toggle Num Lock on and toggle both Cap Lock and Scroll Lock off

So I put this line to /etc/wscons.conf.
setvar  wskbd   ledstate        2

With this configuration, Num Lock indicator is on at login prompt.
But once I start typing username and password to login,
Num Lock indicator goes switched off immediately (without pressing it).
And numeric keypad doesn't work at all.
To activate this Num Lock, I must physically press the Num Lock button once.
This happens for both versions (5.1_STABLE and 6.0_RC2).

Any suggestions are highly appreciated.
