Sorry to reply to a reply but I couldn't find the original posting.
I seem to recall the problem with DEC VT series terminals on other
flavours of UNIX. Basically when vi or similar program starts, it
sends a terminal initialisation sequence, via curses I think, to put
the key pad in "Application" mode rather than "Number Pad" mode.
You really need an Escape sequence programming guide for the terminal
in question for all the details.
Best suggestion I can make is to edit the appropriate terminfo source
and re tic it to change the string. You could save this as a new name
& wrap vi in a startup script which changes the TERM variable just
prior to startup.
Sometimes this also causes backspace to use ^H etc.
